What Would the Wallonians Think?
Just wondering whether Google Maps has purposefully chosen the side of the Flamands in the near-civil war being waged between French and Dutch-speaking Belgians. The reason I ask is that every time I use said program, it gives me the street names only in Dutch - even if I enter the name in French! While fairly harmless when the street is, say, Avenue Louise (or Louizalaan), this becomes significantly more confusing when we're talking about Rue Ducale (or Hertogsstraat).
