Belgique-France/Belgium-France

Passage de la frontière entre Halluin (France) et Ménin (Belgique). Le mobilier urbain permet de savoir où passe la frontière (le territoire français est à gauche du carrefour). Au fond, on aperçoit des magasins belges où sont vendus des produits très prisés pour le commerce transfrontalier (tabac, alcool, chocolats…). Le dimanche, la rue principale de Ménin est très fréquentée par les Français.

Border between Halluin (France) and Menen (Belgium). The French territory is located on the left side of the picture, as it is shown by the street furniture. At the bottom, some specific shops show the importance of the transborder business (Tobacco, liquor, chocolates). On Sundays, the main street of Menen is overcrowded, mainly because of French visitors (Lille is only 15 km far).
