The best thing about Belgium is that it's centrally located, so you can easily escape to better countries, provided you can navigate the web of lies that is the Belgian railway's customer service.---I don't think anyone's ever really died from smoking. --ni

--------It's political correctness gone mad!
What to recommend depends on what your interests are. Maybe you want to see Waterloo (Napoleon's HQ is a tourist area; there's barely a marker where Wellington mustered and nothing at all at Quatre Bras where the actual battle took place (it's a traffic intersection). Leuven is nice for a smaller old city. There's "Vier Water" not too far if you like lakeside walks and such (no swimming though).
If you can be more specific about what you want to do I'll tell you what I can. Sorry I never wrote the Belgium Diaries. Maybe I can if I can recover the primary text file. I think you have my number in case of Belgian emergency; if not PM me.
