Nice event but I can not take it au sérieux. The three states with a serious German-speaking part are Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The Belgian, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein German-speaking people together barely fill a small town. It are totally meaningless dwarfs. When you drive from Maastricht to Luxembourg, before you have even noticed it at all, the German-speaking region in Belgium is already passed.

If we go this way: when will the United Kingdom join the Francophonie? After all London is the biggest French city outside France...

And in addition to that I would say it's rather a diplomatic event to demonstrate the friendship and connection between the (partly) German-speaking countries..


Here are pics of the second day today, September 8:

but what about the German speaking minority in Denmark? And do please, take this event au sérieux! German is a language with a vibrant culture that needs friends to give it the wide spread support it deserves! Furthermore, Montreal is the biggest Francophone city outside France

I think that the car-free day is a great idea and it's always nice to see Philippe and his family together, too. Elisabeth is turning into quite a beautiful young lady! I hope this doesn't come across as a criticism because I'm just asking out of sheer curiosity, but is the mark on her cheek a birth mark or something else; I've never noticed it until now. The photos of Eleonore and Mathilde together are cute, too.
