Back in Brussels. It’s quite a shock.

Day 1 – I want to get back on a plane. Some intestinal problems keeping me home. Went out to get bananas, apples and rice.

Day 2 & Day 3 – did not leave the house except to visit the doctor and find a replacement for my iPhone (sniff, sniff).

Day 4 – almost ready to confront this Brave New Brussels. First impression: people do not smile here and if I do dare to smile you get a look that asks if you are crazy sexual predator. Don’t even think of talking to a stranger. I need a drink, preferably from a mobile street bar.

    So I take it that a) Folks smile a lot more in other places you’ve recently been and b) you didn’t think the Belgians were particularly unsmiling before. I think that you need to start developing a reputation as the Crazy Canuk who darts here and there in Bruxelles smiling and generally jolting everyone you meet with your cheerfulness. Of course you may end up in the Clinque Criminale to enliven the other inmates, but then that’s all part of the fun too, eh?
