Brussels Grand Place at night
Some foreword on Belgium
French people often ask the
question:" How can a country so near to ours be so different ? Flat country, certainly,but the high peaks (relief) is given by the citizens.Warm, cordial , funny and always accessible.The Belgians are much too often
associated with mussels, french fries, chocolate, waffles and good food.
But very often, the Frenchman's superiority complex, which lasted for centuries, takes a severe beating during a visit to Belgium.
Belgium has nothing to envy about his neighbors! Certainly not the Dutch who
come massively to Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges a nd Brussels on weekends to flee the
boredom of their own cities. To have fun, come to Belgium and more specifically
Flanders. You'll soon find ou that the Belgian cuisine is very diversified and doesn't stick to the classic "moule-frites". And what about the Belgian chocolate and "pralines"! The Belgian pastries, the Belgian beer! And the Belgian waffles!! Nothing common with what
I ate 8 years ago in L.A.in a place called"In the Belgian Waffle", yekh!!!
