Carbonade flamande

Carbonade is like a beef stew, but with more beef than stew! I remember when I was little and I'd push the veggies out of the way so I could eat more chunks of beef. The Belgians are smart, they just got rid of the veggies all together.

In the middle of Brussels you can find this emblem of the city. Nobody quite remembers how he came into being but the Belgians love him every bit as much as the tourists. You have got to love a country where the people don't take themselves too seriously and can be this proud of a little pissing boy fountain.

Pretty much the state motto. Don't be stressed, that's stupid, here, have a beer and chill.

Peket (also called Genièvre) is a type of alcohol from the French speaking part of the country. It's an alcohol with a juniper flavored Dutch gin base. However, it's created and sold in multitudes of colors and flavors. When you go to a bar that serves Peket, it's almost like spending the evening in a fancy ice cream shop. You can drink all night and never try the same flavor twice.

Belgian Politics. There is nothing as complicated about this place as their political history so you would expect it to be a sore spot for lots of people. Just this past year, however, we set a new world record for the longest time a country has survived without a government. There were no riots, maybe a few grumbles but for the most part 'Do we have a new government yet?' became an informal greeting and life went on as usual. Now that's peaceful living.

Trust me when I say that there is a damned good reason why the word 'Belgian' on a box of chocolates makes the price double. It's an art form here and they've perfected it.

Yes, you can find cobblestone streets anywhere else in Europe and even in some of the older American cities. That does not mean that it has ever become boring to me. I love to stroll down cobblestone streets with my boyfriend and pop into the little shops or restaurants that we pass along the way. It's one of my favorite ways to explore the country.

Belgian Fries. In this country, their fries are one of the few things that they take seriously. You can say what you want about religion or politics here but if you aren't careful when you say you like the sauce in your fries rather than beside them, you might end up in a full scale public debate with a total stranger.
