All those thousends visitors of the Brocante in Lille wanted to eat something, so there were many terraces with benches to sit down to tables.
The main menu is mussels with french fries and this is what remains, a huge mountain of mussel shells outside the restaurant.
There was some entertainment too, here from Indians making music.
I tried to look up so now and then because Lille has some beautiful buildings in the inner city, as here the "Vielle Bourse" (old stock exchange) at the Grand Place.
With a great courtyard where you could buy all kind of books and big plastified photos. I bought two of them one of a Paris cafe and the other one of some famous actors sitting in a bar, a very funny one.
The Opera building at the Place du Theatre.
The Porte de Paris one of the town-gates of Lille.
On our way to the bus we passed this huge choice of beer glasses.
The end of the day everybody walks home with full bags in the floodlight of the sunset.
