Two very annoying features of Bruxelles
by Lorenzo Piccoli
First, shops close at 6.30 and that are closed on Sunday. This is unreal. Even worse than Trento. I wonder how they live in other Belgian cities if these are the capital’s standards.
Second. Crossing the street is awefully dangerous. They have their own rules here, so it is even more dangerous if the light is green (cars pass anyway, seriously). Plus, quite often you risk being invested by a police car. This is also quite annoying: police cars drive with the alarm on the whole time, and drive very fast too, almost as if they were always rushing for criminals.
So this is a dangerous city to live in. Blame trade unions for the shops and the police for everything else.
