If you've never been to Belgium, I can't at all blame you for having overlooked it, especially being a small, discount version of the superior Netherlands, who's languages are just Dutch and French with their own weird twists.
But, without Belgium, northern Europe, or 'Potato Europe', as we affectionately call it, would be a tragic place full of Haggis and Vol-au-vents.
The pommes de terre frites, patates frites or "French Fries" coined arrogantly by the Americans who think Belgians were french come from here.
You know and love em, and ya have Belgium to thank.
But we were not after chips today, today we hunted waffles, and pretty buildings that were paid for with blood and stolen diamonds.
