Brussels has two oficial languages: French and Flemish, so sometimes it was a bit difficult to communicate and you end up speaking in English, language that everyone speaks there.

Personal comments
I really love cinema, so the filmuseum was a nice place to go. My favourite cafe was Le roi de Belges, located in a neighbourhood full of cafes like this one. Lots of concerts everywhere.. Nightbar: for the Spanish community, our favourite bar was "El Cabraliego", full of Spanish students. Cheap and funny.
