I’ve started settling into my apartment here in La Rochelle and I really like it! There’s a cheap-as-chips supermarket nearby and it’s in a lovely block, too. No internet, yet (am currently mooching off the wifi at a nearby Macca’s) but that’s not even a problem, really.
Still have to do quite a bit of paperwork, but once that’s done, I’ll be fully fledged exchange student and a temporary French citizen! =D OUIIIIIIIII~~~
