more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
Today is the National Day in Belgium (Fête Nationale) . This year even more interesting because it is the second time we celebrate a national day still without government ! We are ready for the Guiness Book of Records no country ever in this world has been without govnerment for more than one year;
As usual there will be the politicians to convince us that we have to dislike each other I mean the Flemish and the Waloons because we are supposed to have language problems. The problems are only political because the Belgian people have no problems with that, except a few fanatics on both sides of course.
The fact that there is no government doesn't bother the majority of the commun people. As long as the Belgian has his comfort and no major problems he takes it with humor and rather no interest. As the TV News are always the same concerning politics, they switch to a French channel or the Flemishs to the Dutch's channels to keep them informed what is going on in other countries and the world in general.
Everything goes smooth and even better than with a government we think.
So we will celebrate our National day together with the King and Queen and the whole Royal family, the same
We will celebrate with picnics in the parks if it doesn't rain and watch the fireworks.
A friend I haven't seen for a long time will visit us and we will go to a nice restaurant and maybe watch the festivities in Waterloo if it doesn't rain.
See how it was in 2009 in Brussels here and in 2010 here in Waterloo
