Hi I'm going to be in Brussels soon making a series of short films with young people. I'd like to know if there are any photo/repro/copyshops in the city where I can have a jigsaw made from a jpeg or other photo file at fairly short motice. Can anyone advise? I'm a stranger to the city so any help with precise address would be much appreciated. Will be based in Anderlecht btw. TIA for any advance Martin
Hello all, Am totally new to this forum. I did live in Bruxelles for nearly 7 years 2001-08 and spent a student year living in Etterbeek and later on in Ixelles and Uccle - married and had a baby at the Edith Cavell so I am not a total newbie to Bruxelles living. But things change and now with two kids 9 and nearly 5 needs change and we change. We now live in Italy where I struggled a bit as an accompanying spouse and six years on are thinking of moving to Bruxelles and sending the kids to the German School if all works out. Obviously given the traffic on the Ring and main roads the choices seem to be Tervuren and Woluwe St. Pierre. My husband likes a house with a little charachter and I like a garden with a canine of sorts in it. Access to the DSB appears to be along the Wezembeek road from St. Pierre. Let me know what the benefits are of living in one or the other. I am a bit social-crazy and would love to be able to nip out at night and also to take the public transport to the city and hanging out there. Not a recluse. Houses in tervuren look a mixed bag with some bungalows being a bit 'crazy' but the gardens look impressive. How's the burgling in that area vis WSP? What's WSP really like? Are the natives friendlier in Tervuren? Or snobbish? Don't be offended but I can't abide snobbish neighbourhoods and will avoid like the plague. The Germans by the sound of it keep to themselves..... sniff... heard so and my little contact with em in Uccle didn't prove this wrong at all. Cheers all,
We will probably be moving to Belgium during this year, I have a 14 year old son who will attend the British School in Tervuren so I am wondering where is the best place for us to look for property to rent. I am thinking that Tervuren is probably the best for location but is there anywhere to eat out or go for a drink in the area? Any other ideas, suggestions or advice greatfully received! Thanks, Vicki
Hi -- can anyone give a tip on where to buy "affordable" berries (particularly raspberries and blueberries) in or around central Brussels? I'm beginning to feel like my father with these sorts of complaints, but seriously, almost €4 for 100g of raspberries at my local Carrefour/Delhaize? Jeez. Any tips v welcome, thanks.

I am looking to purchase a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the Netherlands or Belgium. I speak a little Dutch and some French but would prefer to communicate in English. Can anyone recommend a reliable, trustworthy, dealer who would be prepared to communicate in English. Anywhere in the Netherlands or Belgium would be OK, it does not have to be in Amsterdam or Brussels. Thanks.

Shakespear talked about To BE or Not To BE. That was the question. Now, in the modern world, where we are surrounded and drowned by technology, the real question is to Communicate or not to Communicate. Have you noticed how many people are "communicating" with their Iphones/smart phones while they are sitting in a bus or a tram or a train? Or even in a gathering? Seems like they decided its already better not to communicate with humans and better to communicate with electronics. It's quite sad ! As the world runs on the back of humans not machines. After all, no human being to create the machine, to run the machine, to repair the machine, to receive the answers from the machine, then there will be again no machines. All companies, all shops, all societies, all governments, all schools, all universities,... all run on and because of human beings in communication with each other. How would our world go if we stop communicating with each other, being afraid of communicating with each other? It would be an ugly world! What do you think?
I have only moved to brussels a couple of weeks. I received an undelivered post notice and I have no idea how to recover the package. There doesn't seem to be any way to pick it up from an office, it asks me to have it sent again but I cannot be in the house during working hours. Does anyone know how to get an undelivered package?
