Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, I wouldn't have anything against living in such gems as San Francisco, Santa Barbara, or Santa Monica (all these saints!), but Riverside... well... let's say that London's a bit more cosmopolitan. I don't have anything against California per se, it's one of the most beautiful US states. We left for a combination of reasons -- my expired visa, wanting to be closer to our families, and not wanting to HAVE to have a car... plus, I guess, we're both European and we missed the lifestyle we grew up in.

You pretty much just described myself and my fiancee. I'm Russian, and she is Spanish. We are in the same exact boat, so we are trying to get out as well!

Hopefully Barbara's diary will be of some help for your impending move to Brussels.
