Back from Lille - a lovely small city but not enough to do for four days! Didn't get round to the les3brasseurs as there were so many places to eat and drink on our doorstep. Had a few Maredsous blonde beers whch were good, not so keen on Pelforth but okay. There didn't seem to be a big choice of beers on tap but loads of bottled beers which I don't like to drink when I'm out as I can have those cheaper at home! But all in pretty good. I particularly like the culture there of being able to have a beer at times if you drank here would mark you out as likely to be an alcoholic!

As for vegetarian food - no, I still don't think there's much change! Still, I had plenty of good food to absorb the beer with!

Oh no - just found out I've been cheated - Maredsous is Belgian!! I wanted French beer!!!

Back problem, nerve endings

Hi Muttley - I was getting very tight right glutes and hip flexor with pain down the thigh and, ahem, right "lad" pain. Thought I had just strained something to start with but found a tender area on my lower spine. I used a foam roller to massage out the back and all but the obvious (!) painful areas and after a few days it was much better and all gone after a couple of weeks. Obviously this may not work for you but a foam roller if you haven't got one already is a really useful bit of kit.

That's encouraging - our last visits were to Paris and she didn't starve but any questioning revealed a basic non-understanding of vegetarianism. Did go to a very good Lebanese restaurant and that was fine. I've been trying to cure her of the affliction with the wonderful aromas of bacon and roast chicken for years but she's not cracked yet!

Cheers fat buddha, we're going on the Eurostar but the Lille branch looks very close to where we are staying so we'll probably give that a go. Now all we have to do is find veggie food for my OH! They don't generally get the principal of it in France..

Cheers Phil!

Thanks chaps.

fat buddha - I thought it would be good for beer in Lille. Normally in France I just drink wine as the beer choice is pretty poor.

Dave - I shall make a note not to drink that! I don't want to cause an incident...

Phil - I will stick to local beers where poss unless we sneak across the border.

Thanks booktrunk - however when in Rome and all that - taking my own wouldn't seem right! I do like to try new stuff although I'll admit I'm a bit set in my ways!

Ladies and gents - I'm off to Lille in a couple of weeks and would be grateful for some local beer recommendations please! Normally an ale drinker, I don't like fizzy, cold yellow stuff or anything yeasty that's likely to cause me to be "windy" - don't want to upset the locals!

Merci mes amis coureur.

(Please don't respond in French, I had to use google translate for that)...

Better still if some good bars to drink the beer in are suggested - thanks!

Achy joints, always!

Hi Joanna - I think a visit to your GP is in order. In the meantime, I'm pretty sure a bit of peanut butter now and then won't hurt! In fact, I bought a jar yesterday so I may just join you - on a piece of toast for me!

You can't deny the fun that can be had by creating a willy shape but I can't agree with the reason in this instance - why doesn't she enjoy running?

What's with the massive video advert halfway down the threads?

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!

Are the RW forums running slowly?
