Today, I am starting a series of posts I am calling “Brussels Life.” Each post will consist of pictures and a short explanation of how each subject is a part of life in the city. My hope is each picture and post will give you a small glimpse of life in Brussels.
The Metro is vital to life in the city. It is the main form of transportation for thousands of people commuting to and from work each day and for moving around the city. The subway system is a safe, clean, efficient and usually reliable form of transportation for a family. There are usually signs similar to this one at each entrance to the Metro. The blue sign signifies transportation is near.

Some of the many stairs and escalators utilized to enter the Metro system.
Preparing to board the Metro at a slow time during the day.
There are snack stands in many of the Metro stations/stops for the person who is in a hurry and needs to eat while commuting.
