The internet and just about everyone was asking me: are you planning on Black Friday? Did you get your codes? What did you shop? (And don’t get me even started on Cyber Monday!)
This is pretty new for me: I had heard about the big Black Friday sales in the US; seen some videos of people going crazy and basically the decadence of human beings becoming animals fighting over “stuff”.
Using the excuse of an evening invitation in Lille, we recently spent a day in the capital of Flanders, where we were lucky to see the city at its best with the Indian summer sun shining on its red brick buildings.
Indeed, as soon as we are in Lille, we always try and make some time to shop some "classics" to bring back to Germany where we currently live.
We started with a café au lait at one of the many cafés of the Grand Place, Lille's main square.
