    I'll speak to you in any language you want, dude,

    cause I know english...
    Je parle français un petit peux...
    Ik spreek nederlands, hetgene ook mijn moedertaal is ;)
    ich spreche deutsch ein bisschen...
    Ablo espanõl (yo soy espanõl)...
    Parla italiano...

    Je zegt het maar :) (whatever you say / c'est que vous voulez)

    ps: België is niet raar, ik ben er gewoon niet graag. Elke kans die ik krijg vertrek ik zolang ik kan naar aangenamere oorden ;)
    Belgium isn't strange, I just don't like being there. Every chance I get, I'm searching for better places for as long as I can ;)

    Welcome to MDL!

    Why do you declare Belgium is a strange country? It is a Beautiful country, beside the fact that I am Brazilian, I know Belgium and like it!

    That's only cause you don't have to live there. Come live here for a few years. You'll be running back to brasil ;)

    Belgium is definitely not a strange country for people who know about diamonds, and specifically Antwerp, the capital of the world diamond trade. Also, other things that come to mind: Flemish-Walloonia and the language wars, EU headquarters, Hercule Poirot, and of course that phrase `If it is Tuesday, it must be Belgium' or something like that. From history, of course the Belgian leadership in the late 19th century to carve up Africa amongst the then imperial European powers.
