MY WORLD - Waterloo station
More participants here
Usually when people hear "Waterloo" they think of the Abba song or the place where the famous battle took place, the Lion and Napoleon.
But Waterloo is also a little town, very much appreciated by Americans, Britts and Scandinavians, because we have an American and a Scandinavian school here. The reason why we moved to Waterloo like so many people living in Brussels, was that Waterloo still had something of a country side with farmers and cows and is so near to Brussels. Of course the town has changed especially since the city did a lot of publicity to attract tourists to visit the battle field. People living here are mostly working in Brussels and quite a few take the train !
In front of the station is a huge parking space where you can leave your car for the day, take the train, have no worries with traffic jams and 20 min later you are in the city center of Brussels.
and the back of the station
If it's raining you can wait here
for the train
and this is the "rue de la Station", the "Station road" which leads from the center to the station and hasn't changed very much over the years, neither did the station itself.
