On the way to Paris in June 2006 we passed Lille.
I took some pictures from the bus window, sow the quality is not the best though.

Lille. This French city is actually not so small as the name makes it sound (at least in Swedish, lille=little). It has 1,7 million inhabitants in the metro area and pretty many highrises in the center for a European city as you can see. In the city there is only 181 000 inhabitants though.
