Bruxelles - metro and pre-metro
Built as a pre-metro or in other countries called fast-tram - the Bruxelles system is one of the strangest ones. At some places you can watch from one station to another one standing at the platform, cuz it was built for tram conditions concerning the stops distances. Besides there are 3 lines of regular metro service and another two streches of pre-metro which means underground trams lines. Some stations look really crapy but some are aready refurbished and have nice design.
Once - as i rode metro on the line 1a - just to visit the entire line - some kids were attackng an older woman in the back of the trains, but she took her umbrella and hit them like it were a regular baseball stick (is this the correct word for it? - i doubt, but can not find the proper one) and she was sop persistent that they gave up.
So: what do we learn from this story? - NEVER GIVE UP! /just like that old ladie/
