Andrew Unwin

Name: Andrew Unwin
Profession: Retired interpreter
Lives in: Bruxelles, Eugène Plasky

What do you do in live?

I am a volunteer at Huizeke, a non-profit organization near the flea market that fights poverty in Brussels. I stand behind the counter, pouring beers and having a chat with the people there.

How did you get here?

I am of Scottish descent, but my mother is Belgian. After having lived in Edinburgh, I came to Brussels to work as an interpreter in French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and English of course.

Do you come here often?

A friend advised me this neighborhood. She told me about the great streets in the Dansaert area. And she was right!

What do you like about Dansaert?

The entrepreneurial spirit. Take this pop-up store in rue Dansaert. The atmosphere, it's super.

What made the strongest impression on you today?

Two beautiful women who have just stepped up to me to ask questions about this neighborhood, haha.
