Bergues, France - Farmer's Market 
When in Europe, you just never know when you are going to round a corner and find a man peeing. I guess they don't want to spend the money to pay to use the public toilet. This photo was taken outside the city walls of the medieval town of Bergues, France where we went to a quaint farmers market. The main gate to this walled city was jammed with cars so we decided to go to a small opening in the rampart where we could park and pass through the ancient walls. These towns are so interesting with their narrow streets barely wide enough for one car and the houses sitting right on the edge of the street. The market was set up in the village square and spilled over onto the side streets. You could buy anything from live chickens to skinned rabbits, hundreds of kinds of cheese, or used and new clothing.
