marché aux puces

We already had our first visitor, which was a great excuse for trips to Paris. On Sunday we went to the marché aux puces (fleamarket) de Saint Ouen, a giant fleamarket consisting of 12 sub-markets.  Before the market starts with the usual stalls of printed tshirts, there are street vendors selling corn on the cob roasted over coals. The coals are placed inside a large can which in turn sits in a shopping trolley. Several people also offered suspiciously new iPhones to me.

After the market, where I only bought one single book and nothing else, we had a drink at la recyclerie, a very hip place along abandoned (?) train tracks, that keeps chickens, goldfish, earthworms and goats, has a repair area and alltogether very eco friendly.
