Hello, I live in Belgium. Belgium is probably one of the most complicated countries in the world. This is because there are always (and always have been) tensions between the Flemish/Dutch-speaking north of the country and the French-speaking south. Politics aren't fun here. Smile

Another thing that's not so funny by times, is the weather. I'm sure noobie4life, who also lives in Belgium, will agree with me. There's the rain, and the cold... luckily, spring finally started today!

In Belgium there are three official languages: Flemish, French and German. We are a part of the EU, and our education is very good.

Our ministers have a tendency to tick off other statesmen from other countries. For a more accurate description of Belgium, see:

There's the same problem in every country around the world... east and west US, french and english canada, France and Corse, etc... Regionalism is part of human history...

Are you talking about the post I made?

Well, I hate the tensions between Flemish and Walloons, but Belgium declared itself independant in 1830, and only ten year laters the Flemish feeled oppressed (and they had reason too.) I guess you can't clear those tensions so easily, because they are so profound...

Never heard of tensions between east and west US however. Smile

I'm from the Netherlands.
(And I'm not very proud of it.)
Many foreign people are still thinking that the dutch all smoke weed and other drugs (not medicines, but weed and hasj and that shit).
That is not true (I hope that is now clear).
I don't smoke drugs and I have never did it.
I'm not proud of us reputation of drugs-country but I can't do anything against it.

Here in Belgium we don't think that Dutch are smoking weed all the time... only on Sunday! Wink Joking.

No really, we don't speak about Dutchmen that way. There are other things, but I hate those jokes anyway, you know what I'm talking about. They're based on nothing. Smile

If have nothing better to do check this out : http://travel.poland.com/. You should know about Poland that we don't all steal foregin cars (though it's quite a problem in our country), we're not all alcoholics, though we can drink a lot, and most of us are very friendly to foreginers (unfortunately there are some exceptions). The good thing that Poland is famous for are beautiful girls (of course I am one too Wink ) and John Paul II. Summing up, still worth visiting Very Happy

I regret to say, but Dutch are considered here as the biggest junkies in the world. They are also famous for gay marriage, so it's common to insult people telling "Go away with him/her to Netherlands!". Sorry to tell you this.
