So why is Sunday 3 October 2010 such a noteworthy date I hear you ask? Well, it's the first time that 'Match', my favourite supermarket (!), will be opening on a Sunday. Yup, rampant consumerism, 'I want it here and I want it now' culture, has finally come to Wallonia. Sort of. I've always been a fan of Sunday trading, simply because most people work during the week and it gives them more time to do all their chores, rather than cramming everything in to one day.
Went and it was as busy, and slow, as ever. I have never spent so long queueing as I do everytime I visit this place. Nothing happens quickly in Mons. Smiley, friendly, but painfully slow service. Still, bit of progress in my mind.
