    Pardon my ignorance, I assume you mean Africa and what countries were made colonies of Belgium? I knew the French got into a large chunck of Africa, in the same way the Spanish went into Central and South America?

    Yep. The Belgians were a bunch of ***** in Africa even by colonial standards.

    Ah yes of course. I understood that the Portugese were the worst of the lot in Africa, especially when they sent the locals off to work in Brazil as slaves to Portugese migraints. The conditions were so bad to say that inhumane or horrible would be an understatement. I'm surprised any of them lasted their enforced trip over.

    Anyway I have a question for you Steulen, isn't Flemish a watered down version of Dutch?

    The official language of Flanders is Dutch. Flemish is not a language, it is basically the local Dutch dialect. Because I'm originally from just north of the border, I can understand Flemish pretty well because it is similar to the Dtuch dialect (Brabants) I grew up speaking. Having said that, West Flemish is impossible to understand, I can honestly say I would understand Russian better than what the good folk from Ghent speak.

    What I like about Flemish is that they are very pure in their Dutch; they have to be because it protects their identity from the evil French-speaking Wallons south of the infamous Belgian language border. So where the Dutch seize every opportunity to replace a perfectly good Dutch word with an improperly used English expression, the Flemish have the most wonderfully original Dutch expressions instead.

    A historical fact I feel I should point out is that the Belgian Congo wasn't the property of the Belgian state but entirely the private property of the Belgian king whose name escapes me at the moment.
