I have one day in Brussels next week. (Fly in Tuesday morning, leave early Wednesday afternoon). What should I see?
Also, my knowledge of French is minimal (by which I mean pretty much limited to ‘pardon, ou sont les toilettes, s’il vous plait?’ and 'vous parlez anglais? je ne parle pas francais."). My little mini-guidebook says a decent number of people speak English, so should I try to bumble through things like asking directions and getting something to eat in French, or ask right away if whoever I’m talking to speaks English? [This is the first time I’m travelling someplace I don’t speak the language, and I’m going alone, so I’m really afraid of being the Stupid Ugly American.]
