No. And not what one could generously refer to as 'close'.

...and I was blinded by my affection for Belgium...
Gotta say, not read that sentence very often!
There's a lot to love about Belgium, apart from the beer.
  • Progressive social policies (particularly with regard to voluntary euthenasia).
  • An efficient rail system (the first country in Europe to create a nationally owned rail network).
  • Wonderfully preserved old buildings in the heart of most cities/towns.
  • The ability of many people, particularly in the hospitality sector, to communicate in 3 or more languages.
  • The beer!

Going to stick with geography...

Tegucigalpa is the capital city of which country?
I've no idea, but it looks/sounds to me like it could be in Central/South America?
