My Favourite Brussels anecdote
Brussels is a unique hinge city between the Germanic and the Latin worlds; unlike in London, nobody is monolingual in Europe’s capital, it is actually very rare to find people that speak less than 3. Even Belgians that live and work outside of the EU bubble are very often trilingual. This makes Brussels a truly international city.
