Yesterday it had been a horror day in Brussels. You certainly have seen this terrorist attack on TV.
I too saw what happened the whole day in direct on TV. My friend Ilona unfortunately had to go to a Hospital in Brussels for a check up when the attacks had happened. She was stuck. She called me from a café, if I could pick her up, no bus, no train no public transport at all. Unfortunately I was blocked too, I couldn't help her as all streets to Brussels were closed and nobody was allowed to go into the city.
The poor girl walked for 2 1/2 h towards her home and then called her daughter to pick her up in a café when she had got out of the closed off zone. She told me that when sitting in the little café besides the hospital she saw countless ambulances arriving. It was scaring.
Nicole's granddaughter works for Coca Cola. As it is an American company the employees were asked not to leave the building. The whole area there around was also closed. She said that it had been a terrible day full of fear. To get home by car was very difficult, traffic jams everywhere.
That's all I have heard so far, but I haven't met people yet who work in Brussels.
