Lille, France/lille008

Previous | Home | Next

The name of Lille originally comes from French "L'Ile" (the island), taken from the village's historic settlement in a dry place in the middle of a marsh. Lille is in northern France, only 65 km south of Dunkirk on the English Channel. The culture in Lille shows distinct contributions from neighboring cultures. This bar appears more like that in an English pub than a Parisian sidewalk cafe.
