  • Is always an experience this great place, here really the life rages, 24 hours a day. I can only agree with the others, watching a café or restaurant from above is more relaxed. What is sometimes very unpleasant is the permanent, sometimes already aggressive offering of goods. What i can't do for me is the business with the animals - snakes and monkeys, even the henna painting is borderline for me. To do this, you should go to a certified shop.

  • Every year the square loses its charm. I met her 30 years ago.... with the dohers the tooth snatched the cartomenciennes etc etc ... today little by little this place becomes made in china ... . Even if the atmosphere is always surprising for those who do not know the place. . I know his soul is slowly evaporating
