Happy birthday Belgium! When I was passing Hillhead underground station,
I was given a flyer that told me I could celebrate
179 years of freedom for Belgium, if I spent the evening
at Brel's bar in Ashton lane. If I had been at work today i would have
been there, stuffing my face with mussels, and drinking expensive
Belgium beer. There was a Jaques Brel tribute band too!
Instead I am at home drinking Hoegaarden and Duvel beer.
I did also eat a Belgium chocolate pudding of some kind.
Time for some Brel I think. I doubt that I could love anyone who didn't like this song.
