Ostend is a Flemish town, but it is, above all, an international town, which lives almost entirely on tourists. This is the case with most of the places we shall be visiting. That is why, almost everywhere, foreign languages are spoken, and why so many people speak or understand English. We’re in Flanders here, and the Belgian coast is entirely Flemish. So are Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, and the county of Limburg. Roughly, one half of the country—the northern half between the coast and Holland and right down to Brussels—is Flemish.
