I guess a Belgiun king is 1/8 as exciting as an unborn royal in Britain.

A real Belgian waffle from a street vendor or a walk up window, plain, without all the shiat piled on top, is damn near a religious experience. Dense, doughy, with those delightfully crisp bits of caramelized sugar spread about just so...

If ever renounce my faith in the FSM (grace be to his noodly appendage) I know where I'll look for my eternal salvation.

In other news, there are millions of Belgians.

pretty small country.

I looked it up, there are 11 million of them.

So that's about equivalent to 1/2 a NYC

That's what makes them special. Actually I wouldn't mind trading one NYC for two Belgiums.

Kriek lambic is the name of Belgian cherry beer.

It is made by fermenting lambic with sour Morello cherries.  Lambic is "natural beer", made with whatever yeast stops by its open keg, not by adding yeast.

And what of pommes frites?

The waffle vendors in Brussels are awesome.  Wander around town, see the sights, eat tasty waffles.

Damn it, now I'm hungry.
