After a long journey, we are here in Quimper, a little town in the north-west of France.
Brittany is... different.
We have been very warmly welcomed but we find the French schedule very tiring, as we are not used to it.
During the weekend we visited the coast and the sea, which is very beautiful. All is quiet, except the wind and the sea.
Monday was the first day of classes this week but in the morning we had time to rest. After breakfast we had a guided tour of the town centre. Then the headmaster of the school officially welcomed us and we were very happy to see the Ikurrina amongst the flags of the school.
Tuesday morning we went to town to do a survey and at the same time get to know Quimper properly. We loved the old buildings, the paved streets and of course the cathedral and its history.
In our opinion, it’s a small town with a vibrant commercial sector, where it is very difficult to get lost because you can always see the cathedral landmark.
With regard to our host families, we are all delighted. Their schedules are different to ours; here we get up earlier and go to bed earlier too.
Tomorrow we will go on a day-trip with our French partners. We will get to know the region, but above all we will take the opportunity to get to know each other better.
We are going home on Friday and we really wish that our partners could come with us and meet our families and friends and get to know our country. See you soon!
