“Passion is a positive obsession. Obsession is a negative passion.”
--Paul Carvel... (Belgian author)
“The good Lord has changed water into wine, so how can drinking beer be a sin?”
--Sign near a Belgian monastery
If we are bilingual, it is usually English and Spanish rather than Flemish and French. Our capital is Austin, not Antwerp. (The similarity of Austin and Belgian traffic jams is a coincidence.) But at least when it comes to locally-brewed beer, it seems like Austin is enjoying a little bit of Belgian style.
