Describe your country/town in 5 words
Let's all tell a bit about our country or town using 5 words (and of course explain what they stand for or why you picked them! I'll start by describing my country in general: Belgium
-chocolate: need I say more?
-fries: although the really thin ones are called FRENCH fries, fries are our specialty next to waffles, sprouts and endives.
-fashion: Belgium has brought the world some famous fashion designers like Dries van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Olivier Theyskens,...
-multiculturality: people from all kinds of ethnic backgrounds live together in Belgium, especially in the capital Brussels. Not everything goes as it should be, but I truly believe we're getting there. Although there have been problems with extreme right politicians, the younger generation seems (IMO) more tolerant so I have good hopes!
-music: there are a LOT of great Belgian bands worthy of your attention You may have heard about Hooverphonic, dEUS, Zita Swoon, Das Pop or Vive la fête.
