Thanks to Tamara for contributing these Belgian delights:
You are an xpat in Belgium when:
after 6 months you're still waiting for the police officer to come by your house and check that You are really You, and that You actually live there...
...one of your favorite hobbies is betting on how many hours you'll spend at the commune before being asked to leave and return because they are closed
...you arrived in Brussels and you went to Place Flagey and it was under construction...and 5 years later it is still under construction.
