2/9/18 - King Filip of the Belgians is a man of many talents and if republican sentiment were ever to gain a foothold here he would never have to fear that he couldn't making a living.  On Saturday he surprised all and sundry by driving a tram during the inauguration of the new tram line 9.  Line 9 in Brussels connects Simonis in Koekelberg to Dikke Beuk in Jette and also stops at the University Hospital in Jette.  In time the line will be expanded to the King Boudewijn Stadium.
