::::::Looks like what I was suspecting is true: in the french-speaking part it is like in France, the dutch-speaking part like in the Netherlands; not only in hitchhiking, but also cultural :(

:I quite disagree with most of the statement there, I hitched in Wallonia, France, Flanders and the Netherlands while living those regions to move around for daily routine, to do a week end excursion in the countryside or for plain travelling and none of the country was easier or more difficult than another. I never noticed a more 'easy going' point of view from the dutch or flemish towards hitching than the wallons or french could be, it was quite 50-50. In many cases I would have had it hell if I wasn't speaking Dutch while aboarding someone (in NL - VL) nd the same applied if I wasn't speaking french (in F - Wl). The text should definitely be changed from ''will be more difficult'' to ''may/might be more difficult''. My last day-trip through Wallonia brought me and my friend from Brussels down into Rochefort by nightfall and then hitching several rides between the different villages (about 5 destinations) before heading back to Namur, we never had to wait more than 10min or 5 cars.
