Some people asked me what do they write, tell & broadcast in Belgium.
Here is just a selection I made of Iceland coverage in the Belgian (Flemish) media this week to illustrate it & to make my point: - 150,000 Icelanders/inhabitants? (Daily Newspaper Het Nieuwsblad (The Newspaper) this week)
- 10 EUR for a beer? (they suggest with using the word "pintje" a small beer 0,25 liter) (my most expensive beer ever in Iceland was @ Astro Bar Airwaves 2006: 9 EUR for for 0,5 liter) (Newspaper Het Nieuwsblad)
All the Icelandic girls/ladies are flaxen-haired blond. Just look @ Björk ;-) (Daily Newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws (The Latest News)).
The Icelandic pony one of the most pure horse breeds in the world? What kind of a sentence is this (Het Laatste Nieuws)?
The word "pony" reminds me of The Sugarcubes song "Cowboy" (on the Elektra Album (USA version of) "Life's too good").
Einar Örn Benediktsson sings:
Cowboy, Cowboy, in the big town
I'm a cowboy in the big town
I'm looking for my pony
A man's best friend is his pony
I'm a cowboy
