For a small fee, artist Valéry Lippens' original "sound walks" are an engaging way to see & hear the "real" Brussels. These narrated tours of public and sometimes private places offer interviews with residents, shopkeepers, and cultural figures, such as the Belgian jazz musician Toots Thielemans. The best little segment in English is about the walks in the historic Marolles and in the ancient city center around the Grand Place. The name of the website is D*Tours.
London, Paris, Barcelona and Ahmedabad, Gujarat (India) are also available. The list is slowly growing so check back on a regular basis ... and who knows, one day you might just get to discover your own town in a whole new way.
