ST JOSSE, 1210 BRUSSELS
Map of St Josse on chée de Louvain
Photo I took January 21, 2006 when walking from my home to the Mozart day organized by Klara, the Flemish classical radio station, in Bozar
St Josse is the poorest town of Brussels (based on the average income of its citizens)
But what's "the map of being poor"?
Sint Joost is the Flemish sign for the stop
Saint Josse is the French sign for the stop
These signs make it easy for us travelers: we know exactly where we are and don't have to ask the driver for information
About Brussels busses: Bus 65 ends at the headquarters of NATO. It was shocking for some peace activists to see a bus with Nato as final destination, which inspired me to the joke, don't worry about Nato, that's only a yellow bus!
Yellow busses in Brussels are run by the subway company (called MIVB or STIB). White busses are run by a Flemish bus company (called DE LIJN). So you need different tickets for both systems unless it is a transit ride (hopping from one system to the other is allowed with the same ticket but only if you hop...)
