In Belgium, The first of May is the International Workers’ Day. This is the day that we celebrate the beginning of the 8-hour working day. On this day the SPA (Socialistic Party) parades in the streets reminding the people of our need for cheaper healthcare, good working conditions, more work and other social problems that should be highlighted. This day shows the international solidarity of the working people and the common folk. I was there in Ghent:

  2. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
