As I mentioned yesterday I went to the big flea-market in Lille last Saturday. It was a beautiful bright warm day but the city was so crowded with so many people that we felt a bit stuffy. It was like a Queensday in Amsterdam, everybody tries to sell their old things, street after street. When we saw something interesting it was very expensive. So in the end I only bought a poster and my daughter some clothes.
We tried to catch a glimpse of the old city and climbed on the stairs of a building to have a look over the crowds.
There was a bookmarket in the courtyard of the old stock exchange.
At a terrace we had lunch with a "Galette", a buckwheat flour pancake. I had it garnished with potatoes and ham, my daughter with mushrooms.
The main menu however this day is the shell-fish "Mussels with French fries". You saw it offered everywhere and these are the remains.
We found a rare quiet place here.
Where my daughter made this picture of me. At twelve o'clock midnight we arrived home again, where we tumbled in our beds. What a day!
