3 August 2010, Tuesday
Lille, France (continued)
by Raymond Shirritt-Beaumont


We used this day to recover from the previous day and get oriented to our new surroundings. In the morning, I studied maps of the city and surrounding countryside in preparation for venturing out to the battlefields. In the afternoon, we toured the downtown business district of Lille. It is a very interesting city.
