La Vieille Bourse: II

We stepped into the courtyard and there in the cloisters was a book market. It’s there every weekday. What a pleasure to get out of the hot sun and join others browsing among the stalls of antiquarian and used books and watching the chess games.

I wasn’t in Lille on a Sunday, but apparently that’s when there are impromptu tea dances in the courtyard. It would have been too hot for much dancing when I was there.

Thanks to Marie of Alexandria Daily Photo for her four cliffhanger posts this week, which inspired me to make this a two-part post.

    This is by far one of my favorite spots in Lille. Great shots of it, BTW!
