W is for Washington DC, USA.


On July 16, 1790, the United States Congress approved the creation of a special district to serve as the permanent national capital as permitted by the U.S. Constitution.


The District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state and is instead directly overseen by the federal government.

D - Diksmuide - Belgium


Diksmuide is a Belgian city and municipality in the Flemish province of West Flanders.


Most of the area west of the city is a polder riddled with drainage trenches. The major economical assets of the region are agriculture and farming,

producing the famous butter of Diksmuide.



* The belfry contains a 30-bell carillon and is one of the several Belfries of Belgium that are recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

* The City Hall and neighbouring Saint Nicolas Church were completely rebuilt after World War I in the Gothic style of the 14th and 15th century.

* The “Trench of Death” (Dodengang in Dutch), preserves the trench setting where Belgian soldiers fought under the most perilous conditions until the final offensive of September 28, 1918.

* A peace monument, the IJzertoren, was built after the First World War in the twenties. This tower was destroyed by a bomb in 1946 because during the Second World War the IJzertower was the scene of ceremonies by Nazis and collaboration. The new tower was built in the 1950s. The tower houses a United-Nations-owned, World War I museum, where you can, among other things, experience the odour of mustard gas. The IJzertoren is also the scene of the yearly IJzerbedevaart, a celebration of peace and of Flemish political autonomy. During World War II, it was used for Nazi-inspired meetings. After the war it still had problems with neo-Nazis from all over Europe. However they were a minority, but the press emphasised this minority participation. But after long years the organisers succeeded in banning those radical neo-Nazis from the Yserpilgrimage. The more radical Flemish fraction now organizes the IJzerwake.

* Several military cemeteries are located around Diksmuide, including the Vladslo German war cemetery, which is now the resting place for more than 25,000 German soldiers. Famous sculpture of the 'Mourning parents' by Käthe Kollwitz.

Fort Lauderdale, USA


Fort Lauderdale in Florida, on the Atlantic coast.


Fort Lauderdale is a popular tourist destination. It is sometimes known as the "Venice of America" because of its expansive and intricate canal system.


The city is sometimes referred to as "Fort Liquordale" because of its beaches, bars, nightclubs, and history as a spring break location for tens of thousands of college students.


In recent decades (starting around the 1980s), the city has become known for having a large gay community and being a popular vacation spot for gay and lesbian tourists. Even though

the LGBT presence is noticeable all over Fort Lauderdale, the highest concentration of gay and lesbian residents is in the townships of Oakland Park and Wilton Manors, with the latter

often being called the 'Gay-borhood' or the 'Gay village'.

Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. Nagasaki was founded by the Portuguese in the second half of the 16th century on the site of a small fishing village. It became a center of Portuguese and other European peoples' influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Churches and Christian Sites in Nagasaki have been proposed for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.


During World War II, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki made Nagasaki the second and, to date, last city in the world to experience a nuclear attack.
