Ade: Good afternoon Chris, tell me, we want to know what are your favorite places in your country?

Chris: My favorite places in my country. Well Belgium is actually a city country, I mean we have ... of course we have a beach which is a pretty long beach. It's not the most beautiful one but it has, I mean a lot of opportunities for children to play to make these nice sandcastles. When the tide is low you can go jogging, play ... play even tennis on hard sand beach. Then apart from the beach we also have our hills, I mean they're not that high, I mean the highest one is about 700 meters, it's a nice place full of nature where you can have nice walks and you can also ride a bike. There are nice tracks to ride a bike. And then of course you have the cities, I mean best cities, there is ... my city is Antwerp, that's where I come from. Antwerp is of course really known for it's commercial port, nice shopping opportunities, also night entertainment. Night time entertainment is really nice in Antwerp.

Ade: Really!

Chris: Of course, you should try it. I mean if you come once, I'll be your tour guide.

Ade: Oh, thank you so much.

Chris: And if you come ... I mean you should come three days, but I mean it's nice to visit three days, I wouldn't come longer, three days. One day to see Antwerp, another day to see, for example, Brugges. Brugges is a really idyllic place, it's a really romantic place with the river running through town, some nice ancient buildings, chocolate shops in every corner. We can try the real Belgian chocolate. And then of course you have our capital, Brussels, which is full of history. I mean Brussels you see one history place next to the other, and museums, plazas, our famous Manneken Pis as they say.

Ade: Oh yeah, I heard about it, it's the little children making pee.

Chris: It's our mark. It's Brussels brand let's say. It's Mannekan Pis. Everybody wants to see it and take pictures, I mean, it's full of people taking pictures of it, but it's actually just a little man, let's say peeing, and it's not, I think it's not more than 40 centimeters. That's it actually.

Ade: Nice.

Chris: And more, I think that's about it for Belgium. I mean, it's a nice country to live in. It's pretty gray. It has some nice cities. It has its beach. It has it's hills. It has everything, but it just doesn't have the good weather.

Ade: Ah, that's why all Belgians come to Spain.

Chris: That's right. That's why I'm living actually in Spain right now.

Ade: Ah, perfect. I hope you like it.

Chris: Sure!

Ade: OK, Chris, thank you very much.

Chris: No problem.
