      Alexander Pushkin in Brussels

      Brussels Feb 9, 2017 at 4:04 AM

      Hi, if there is anybody still there...
      I am going to Brussels in May, just read today - it's exactly 180 years since he was killed by a fellow from these places - that there is a statue, a street and even a bus stop in Brussels named after our poet Alexander Pushkin (Pouchkine).
      I have found the statue in Laeken (wonder where this is), between metro stations Belgica and Bockstael. No sign of any street.
      Any idea how I get to this Laeken from Avenue des Merles, 9 à Woluwé Saint Pierre. The good old Google says it should take about an hour on two buses (or maybe they are metro lines). Does it look feasible?
      I do not know much about Brussels, have got a Home Exchange arrangment there - helps to travel economically...

      Looking for someone to help me find an old cafe

      by jj1807 Online Now Jul 9, 2007 at 4:38 PM

      I am attempting to locate a cafe near Malmédy where my grandfather stayed in December of 1944 as a US soldier. It is not the cafe associated with the massacre which was set on fire at that time. I have collected several clues from my grandfather about the cafe and its location but, so far, I have not been able to determine its name or actual location.

      I would be extremely grateful if someone who is familiar with the area could help me attempt to identify it. My goal is to visit the location someday. I recognize that the building may no longer be standing or is very likely now being used for another purpose.

      If anyone would like to assist, please contact me by sending an e-mail through this site to user jj1807. Thanks!
