Travel notes: Brussels, Belgium

I have just returned from a long weekend in Brussels – the impression this rain-defying city left on me is one of diversity: I was expecting familiar notes (in the resonance between Flemish and Afrikaans), but I also found sounds of Portuguese, Arabic, Spanish, Italian and Cantonese, among others.  Then there was the assortment of food and shops reflecting a mix of cultures (reminding me of South Africa as well).  What a (refreshing) difference diversity makes!  What is it like where you are?
