Braderie


This week we have 'la fête du commerce' in the city centre, a kind of large street market; most of the city centre shops participate and there's various sideshows and brass bands and all manner of festive activities and merrymaking. Mirth and jollity abound and shopping is being done in large quantities.

Et en plus du monde, il y a les odeurs de frites etc et le bruit: n'oublions pas le brouhaha, l'accompagnement sonore, le sponsor Radio Nost*lgie avec son animatrice qui vient avec micro, la fanfare, les Bresiliens, le tambour turc et 15 fois par jour 'Freedom' de George Michael! Party on Wayne!

Sounds very fun, Greg. It would be nice to stroll around there today.

Thank you for your visit and comment about the knitting. Hello to your wife and you. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey Greg, je viens d'apprendre que la météo n'a pas été clémente avec ces gros orages sur Liège. J'espère que tout va bien.

Gosh. That top picture looks like any street in Japan.
