“Oh Vilvoorde City, more
specifically in the Far West.”
In 1975, singer Kris De Bruyne
described the Flemish Brabant
town as if it was located in the
Far West. Actually, Far West is
a district in Vilvoorde, but the
lyrics were also a reference to
the town’s working man’s image.
These days, Vilvoorde again
seems a bit of a rough spot,
as home of many of the
mujahideen who have left
Flanders to fight in Syria.
