Ever since the "lock down" in Brussels following the terrorist alerts have very much damaged Brussels' image. From level 4 it's now down to level 3, which in my opinion is not really justified, as Brussels looks as peaceful as a cow field, I mean at least in the center, outside it's even more quiet.

The Brussels City Center responsibles decided to launch a campaign to reassure tourists and boost the image of the city. 

Somebody had a very original idea ! If you want to be absolutely sure that no terrorist will bother you, just look for the site, Call Brussels.  The Brussels inhabitants themselves will reassure the visitors !

Phone booths  have been installed in three strategic locations of the city.

If you hear such a phone in a booth ringing, everybody can respond to questions from foreign tourists.

I should take a chair with me and sit besides one !

I couldn't stop laughing at the image I have of you sitting by one of those booths. Whose daft idea was it to put those around the city?

I read about them in the paper today and I think it is all about publicity for Brussels as much as anything. I like the idea. Of course calls from Australia will be made during your night time, so perhaps you need a sleeping bag too.

What a good idea. With your language skills you really must sit beside one of the phones all day and wait for the phone to ring. Please publish the number of these phones and we can ring you for a free chat.

Hi Gattina - that's creative ... now we need the number so we can ring.

It's difficult getting people to forget the anxiety .. it will happen - all the best Hilary
