My old neighborhood

Posted by Dick on 02/10/2005 10:13:55 AM

Hi, J,

I used to live very near there, at the corner of Rue DeFacqz and Rue Faider, in Ixelles. The 92 tram runs right past your front door. It will take you to Congres, from which you can crawl to the BC. Or, you can take it just to Place Louise, and grab the metro towards Simonis. Get off at Arts-Loi (3 stops) and change to the 1A or 1B line towards either Roi Buadouin or Erasmus. The third stop is De Brouckere, right near the Gran' Place, and not far from the Zageman.

Or, take the metro from Louise the other way (Clemenceau), and get off at Midi (3rd stop). You are very close to Cantillon.

The walk to the GP from there isn't so bad, as it's either flat or downhill, which explains why the walk home is not as much fun.

The neighborhood isn't that bad, actually. Chaussee de Charleroi is a reasonably busy street, and well lit. There are areas over towards the Moeder Lambic that are a bit dodgy, but if you go there, just take a tram.

Speaking of busy streets, try to get a room in the back, to avoid morning truck and commuter noise.

I know your interest wanes as non-beer topics arise, but there are lots of excellent distractions in that neighborhood. Drop me a line and I'll give you some options.

Cheers!

Dick
