Last weekend I went to Lille, it is only around 200 km south so we went by car. Drive for less than three hours and you have crossed trough Belgium and you are in France! You notice the difference immediately once you cross the not-so-border-like (European Union) Nederlands-Belgium border. The road signs are not vibrant blue and the street lights are different. The differences between Belgium and France are harder to detect in my opinion. Also North-France and Vlaanderen were once united. I didn’t eat crazy many tartelettes this time, as I now know how to make them myself, but I did enjoy looking and eating some of the local foods.
