And, like every year, a good time was had by all. We drank beer, we ate moules-frites (mussels and fries), we bartered and haggled, chatted and laughed with strangers, and walked till we dropped. I came away with a beer glass for 50 centimes, two blouses for 2 euros each, and a colourful pareo for a euro. The giant flea market of Lille, better known as La Grande Braderie, takes place every year over the first weekend of September. Be there next year!
Bye for now. My next trip will be to Bruges, Belgium in November.
