Languages in Belgium seem to be a mess.

> On the train: first Dutch, then French
> In metro: first French, then Dutch
> At the university: only Dutch, plus English for foreigners
> In shops: French
> On the streets: Godzilla only knows

As accustomed to Berlin’s multiculturalism I am, I’m feeling quite lost here anyway. I’ve no idea which language should I think in, how to start a conversation, what to expect...

I kinda start to understand nationalistic point of view (just a bit). Unicultural, unilingual Poland is so “safe”, so predictable in that matter...
