An autumn in Brussels

Brussels, Belgium is my exciting new city for the fall 2013 semester. My home within this beautiful European capital is the Financial Times Brussels bureau, where I have the great honor of interning. It’s sure to be a humbling, enlightening and ultimately life-changing experience.

One of the first experiences I had in Brussels, this “museum” changed the way I view the EU and Europe in general.

Three weeks in, those three words sum up my study abroad experience so far.
