Nevertheless, every day looks different (as for the weather anyways here in Brussels), as there are often interesting happenings and encounters. Thus, I have now made it a habit to always take my little camera with me in order not to miss anything worthy to be recorded.
On Friday for instance, I took the metro as I do every morning. In fact, I was quite late as I had a problem with my sciatica again and needed to see my chiropractor for this. So I took the metro around 10 AM, which was very pleasant, as the rush hour is over by then. Surprisingly, the first elder of the French speaking church was in there, and so I sat down and talked with him.
Then a musician came into the metro. Well, not a professional one, but there are definitely people in this city who have musical talents. However, the first aim of these particular individuals is not to show off their talents, but rather to "earn" a little money to make ends meet. So this man came in with his accordion and played while his little son was accompanying him with a small hand bell (by the way, I'm wondering now: shouldn't the boy have been at school around this time?). It sounded really pleasant. While he was still playing, the son collected the money. Of course, it's a voluntary contribution. Some people give, but most people don't. Nevertheless, I can well imagine that this kind of activity can bring in quite some additional income - depending on how many metros you enter!
Let's see if I can catch some more glimpses about my everyday life. I'm sure I will at some point.
