Lille, is nice, but Lille is not green ! And that's not so nice.

I know, you can't have it all, but I have to admit that I miss parcs to go for jogging and the proximity with the country-side (that we had in Rostock).

Spetember and early October were really nice weather-wise, and on October the 9th we had very incredible temperautre. I prove it with pictures from the clock down our flat, and that we check every morning to decide what to wear.
