L'auberge européen

If Rome is called the eternal city, I would say that Brussels is the ephemeral one..

Be it for a couple of months, years or even decades, there is definitely a lot of people just passing by. As awward as it may seem, this city is not a destination in itself, it's just a way through to somewhere or something. Even if that something is a work with the European or other international institutions, likely to be placed here.

And there again, we cannot say that all the ways lead to Brussels. But we could say that all the ways pass by, making of this intriguing city an “auberge” in the croosroad of many, maybe even too many, life paths.

Could not agree more...

Those that happen to stay in Brussels for a longer period of time become reluctant to make friends, since the reality of constant move in Brussels, makes it impossible or hardly possible to attach yourself too strong to one person or the other...

But as a "waiting room" Brussels is a great place to be...

O sol, pouco comum em Bruxelas, está a inspirar-te... Isso não são saudades de casa, não?

Renaldas, you got the point of my message. The fact that we start to become "immune" to new friendships was a bit the bottom line of the post. Finally I left it out because in fact I also developed friendships that I'm sure will be long lasting ones :-)
