A street in cake city

Afternoon Lille

I really liked the houses in Lille, everything was so cupcake-like, especially in the centre – I read now that “Lille features an array of architectural styles with various amounts of Flemish influence” @Wiki.

I enjoyed discovering the city on my own very much, and I’m happy to report that I managed to walk most of the Historic Architecture Walking Tour in Lille, although I didn’t know I actually wandered along a route at that time 😛

Alone under the skies

I realize that I forgot to share any pictures of Lille, a pretty French city where I got to spend a part of my Christmas holidays. Even though I didn’t have much time there, I got to see a lot of the city because I climbed up this monster:

Not the statue, the wheel

Heights make me uncomfortable, especially when I’m facing them alone. I had hoped to share a cabin with the couple in front of me in line, but the chief of boarding had other plans. He probably thought their ride would be more romantic for them without me.

There they are, happy as clams probably happy as clams!
And it was far down - view of a christmas tree
And it was far down
The view was nice though - city
The view was nice though
Notice how the houses in Lille look like cakes from above?

xo xo, the survivor :-p

French connection

Sucks. It might not be the case for the whole France, but the Internet at my aunts keeps going on and off, and even when it’s on, most pages load so slowly that I forget what I had clicked, and then, after waiting for ever, I get the most annoying message: connection lost (happened a million times during this half hour!). My Reader is also a lost case, and so is my Facebook. Which is really no problem, until I decide to update myself on what’s going on in my world to find out it’ not possible. So annoying. I will not try more today (but then I probably will, damn it!). So buh-bye.

Perhaps tomorrow.
