Where in the World: Belgium

I have been to Belgium before, so I am excited to see facts I may not have had a clue on

  1. Belgium is boardered by the Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest and the North Sea to the northwest
  2. The national symbol of Belgium is a peeing boy, Manneken Pis, which is in Brussels, he can change his outfit (or be naked) 2 or 3 times a week, there is a museum with alot of his costumes near the statue
  3. You can drink a Belgium Beer every day for four years and not have the same beer twice, thats how many this country brews, well over a 1000 and each beer has its own glass
  4. Smurfs are from Belgium
  5. Durbuy is the world’s smallest city, it has just 500 people living in it
  6. There are 3 official languages in Belgium French, Dutch and German, depending on where you are, will depend what language you will need
  7. Belgium sometimes takes a long time form a government, 589 days is the record
  8. If you like castles, this is the place to visit, it has more castles per kilometer than any other country
  9. Fact from me, the best mussels I have ever had, I had here, one of their most famous dishes is moules frites and get a beer as well
  10. Enjoy some traditional music from this lovely country

Are you from Belgium? Say Salut, Hoi! or Guten Tag depending on what part you are from
