Seems like a smallish turnout of mostly women, or is that just what caught your attention? :P

Did you participate?

Did you enter?

And do you know if the small print in French is the same as the English version?

Signed up and praying for mercy.

Whatever the French say goes i.e. whatever the English say is of absolute no importance, always.

Reminds me of Fiddler on the Roof's If I were a rich man:

There would be one long staircase just going up,
And one even longer coming down,
And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

Looks as if blind drivers also exist in Belgium. And judging by what looks like rust marks on the tarmac, also town councils that are slow to maintain.
