I’m heading off tonight for four days of wandering around the French Channel port of Le Havre (the second biggest in France). From Wikipedia:
"Le Havre was once synonymous with urban gloom and greyness. The city’s inhabitants have done much to change this; as a result of substantial improvements, Le Havre is now spoken of as the Brasilia of France."
I kind of enjoy urban gloom and greyness, so maybe I’m already too late?
