    And live in Belgium. Don't ask

    if I speak Belgian, because Belgian is not a language! In Belgium, there are French-speaking people, Dutch-speaking people and German-speaking people.

    Van Damme Should Lose His Belgian Nationality.

     Jean-Claude Van Damme, you come from a country that produces high-quality beers and ales, including Trappist beers. To prostitute yourself to sell watery, industrially produced beer is an antipatriotic act and a blasphemy; indeed, a treason. You are no longer worthy of calling...

    I'm from Leuven, THE university city.

    I like being Belgian, because for me it stands for neutrality, internationality and tolerance. Unfortunately, our elections yesterday told me that those values are not something every Flemish person tries to uphold. I love fries, I love chocolate, hate beer though. As long as...

    Ardennes Girl

    I was born and grew up in the Ardennes countryside, in a village of about 150 inhabitants. Home means green fields and forests and cows. I love where I come from.

    2nd Generation American

    I am half Belgian from my mom's side of the family, and German-Irish-Dutch on my dad's. My grandma Emelie spoke with the most beautiful French dialect. She must've become irritated with me, always trying to get her to speak in her native tongue. Aside from that, many people claim...
