Fondest memory: <CENTER><font color = red><b>The day I was moving out there...</b></font color = red></CENTER>

<CENTER><font color = green>Brussels is a very nice place to visit and tourists will see a lot of the beauty it has.</font color = green></CENTER> <CENTER>Like you see on this page, the <font color = blue>buildings are fabulous</font color = blue> over there. But there is always a <font color = blue>difference</font color = blue> between <font color = blue>visiting</font color = blue> and <font color = blue>living</font color = blue> there.</CENTER> <CENTER>Like I told before, I was living there for two years.</CENTER> <CENTER>The <font color = blue>centre of Brussels</font color = blue> is nearly completely <font color = blue>uninhabited</font color = blue>, just a few older people who lived there all of their life. The <font color = blue>centre of Brussels</font color = blue> is just one <font color = blue>big shopping centre</font color = blue>, <font color = blue>office</font color = blue> and <font color = blue>catering industry</font color = blue>. Most of the people moved away from the center and are living now in the <font color = blue>suburbs of Brussels</font color = blue>. But the <font color = blue>integration of immigrants</font color = blue> and the way the <font color = blue>politician are working out the related problems is really disgusting</font color = blue>. They're putting many people in <font color = blue>ghettos</font color = blue> what creates potentially a dangereous situation for <font color = blue>street crime in these neighbourhoods</font color = blue>. The <font color = blue>culprits of this situation</font color = blue> are the <font color = blue>politicians</font color = blue>, and <font color = blue>Molenbeek</font color = blue>, <font color = blue>Anderlecht</font color = blue> and <font color = blue>Schaarbeek are famous for it…</font color = blue>. <font color = red>And I lived in Molenbeek…</font color = red>.</CENTER>
<CENTER><font color = green>If I can fill in on VT 'I never visit again' I will do that…</font color = green></CENTER>
