I had gifts to distribute, so up I went to Lille last weekend. On the road again. The cloudscape that weekend was remarkable. I took photos from the train window.
Re-united with my 7-year old godson. We went to our favorite spot for lunch, the Gare Saint Sauveur, with his sister. Then two hours in Lego Land.
If only they could stay seven forever!
“Go on, then,” I said to him, “Read the writing on the wall.” Which he did.
Then we visited Europa House, which changes themes every few months. Here, it is a Mexican house.
Then we went out back where a huge urban space has been transformed into a sort of playground for kids and adults alike. There’s a communal barbecue, small gardens planted by schoolkids, and games.
