You see a lot of signs as your driving around, "Friterie", is a place that sells "frites" what we would call fries, or french fried potatoes. Now if they called them that it would be " pomme du terre au Francais frit", a little long since they call the potato, apple of the earth. The fries here are a big deal as you can see, they are served as a lone snack all over the place, with salt or mayonnaise, another Belgian thing. The reason they are called French fries is they are french cut potatoes fried.
You see car lots on the side of the road, the cars have signs that say "occasion" they use this word as we do but in this case they have another meaning, opportunity.
Another word I saw a few times under a road speed sign, had me wondering. Is this something I need to worry about? "Rappel" again they use it as we do, to rappel down something with a rope, but in this case I think it is a reminder, of the speed limit. The judges say YES.
