We haven’t even started classes yet, but already we are working well together.
Some of us met up for drinks at Brussel Sprouts this evening. However after a while it got pretty noisy and warm, especially for those who had just come over from more temperate climes. So we thought of moving to another watering hole.
Earlier, I spoke to a local waiter and he promised to reserve the bar counter for me. However by the time we paid up at Brussel Sprouts, another waiter had given it away to a couple of groups. We were standing around looking for tables and wondering whether to move on.
Melissa then noticed another waiter was Filipino, and started speaking to him in Filipino. He moved us to a table at the bistro, which was air-conditioned and much quieter so we could hear ourselves talk.
So that was taken care of :)
Then it was time to order wine. That responsibility fell, of course, upon the French and the French-speaking. After some discussion between our lone Frenchman Guillaume and Algerian Amel, we went with Amel’s choice and the wine was amazing!
So see, we are already using our new network to get us places :)
