Our first day was a heartwarming reunion after a long time of not seeing one another. After a sightseeing at the Lycée Marguerite de Navarre, a visit at the schools library and a lunch break some french students showed us around in the petit yet astonishing city centre which has a lot of medieval architecture. We learned a lot about Jacques Cœur and why he’s such an important figure in Bourges, Berry’s specialities and we visited the stunning cathedral Saint-Étienne followed by a little tour through a garden midst town. They educated us about the tradition of gardening and in the end they gave us delicious chocolate bread.
During the many multilingual workshops and hiking trips we exchanged our current situation with the project and future plans as well as new ideas with the other students.
