Only in Belgium

Only in Belgium

A non fiction book by

Belgium is a strange and interesting country. It is a country of odd local festivals, bizarre museums and curious art. Yet everyone is firmly convinced that it is the most boring country in the world. This book sets out to prove that, au contraire, it is possibly the most interesting country in the world. Where else would you find: a town called Silly; a beer called Sudden Death; a museum of brooms; the man who invented the mechanical internet; a nation that believes Tuesday is the happiest day of the week; the Smurfs; the birthplace of Hercule Poirot; an organisation that enacts rules on the correct time to boil a cat; a tombstone to a leg; a rule that you must renew your death certificate every ten years; the man who invented roller skates; the world's least successful weapon of mass destruction
