      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...

      We are staying in Brugge for six nights in Sept. Would like to day trip to Antwerp and
