Belgians is it?
Let's scotch that shameful "I bet you can't name 10 famous Belgians" jibe for a start. Adolphe Sax, Georges Simenon, Audrey Hepburn, Frankie van der Elst (he was a footballer), Arthur Grumiaux, Rubens, Breugel, Magritte, Jacques Brel; and of course the world's (let alone Belgium's) greatest cartoonist*, Georges Remi, AKA Herge. See: there's 11 for a start, and I deliberately left out Eddie Merckx to reinforce my case. OK, some of those may not be Belgians, but you get my point. And anyway, Andy Townsend played for Ireland, so does it matter at all?
Then there are Bruges, Antwerp, Gent, the Grande Place in Brussels and those lovely glowing, yellow bollard-shaped light things at motorway exit slip roads. And the beer.
* Oh yes he was! Read 'The Calculus Affair' - but not on the shiny paper of recent editions so you get the magical colours of Geneva in and after rain on pp 19-20.
