Why Belgium?

I wanted to write about Belgium because this is where I come from and I love it. I'm an exchange student here in the U.S. and I can't even remember how many questions (and how many silly questions too) I've been asked since I came here. I found out that a lot of people actually didn't know my little country and had no idea where it was. I also found out that, if they did know it, all they knew about it were the Belgian waffles, beers or chocolate. I want to make them realize that this is not it. We have so many other things, mostly cultural, that we can be proud of and that more people should know about.

I'm hoping that by the time this blog is over, my American friends and teachers won't have any more questions about Belgium. I'm planning to post different articles that will talk about Belgian culture, our weather, the capital city, the people, the way of living,  and maybe some posts about Europe in general. I'm planning to answer every question I've been asked and talk more about them.
