Yes, the same for Belgium , they have 3 national languages, being Flemish, French and German and the government has to cater for that, Luxembourg has 3 too, French , German and the last one being some weird mix of both I believe.So today we have continued our drive scross Bavaria using mostly non motorway roads and through dome very picturesque landscapes. Some of the roads we hsve been on look like they have only just been completed. Immaculate surfaces brand new crash barries and new posts.
We have arrived in the oldest town in Germany, Kempten. Its documented at being 2000 years old and I will post dome pictures later today.
I said on my very first post of this thread that If I had any noteworthy information I would post it.
Well I just found this out and vonsider it noteworthy, so here goes! Did you know the Swiss do not speak Swiss. I've just been talking to a Swiss couple who I thought had a French accent and that is because they both speak French. Little did I know people of Switzerland speak either French, German or Italian and it is not uncommon for one not to understand the other because they are speaking different language's ( a bit like a Geordi and someone from Cornwall trying to have a conversation I guess!). Also, because of this language issue the goverment has to produce its written laws, codes and documented information etc., in all 3 languages too. What a palava. By the way those Bratties I cooked yesterday were very handsome.
