After three trains, one plane and a tram, I arrived at Pierrelatte station at about half six on Thursday evening. About two minutes after sitting down outside the station, wondering how I would recognise my contact for the placement, Caroline, she drove up, waved, and took me shopping, and then to the studio flat I'll be staying in for the next eight weeks.
It's not very pretty...

...and about as stark inside, but it does the job. Caroline noticed at that point that they never had got around to getting any chairs! I'm perched on the sofa-bed to write this, with my laptop on the box the microwave came in.

Other parts are much prettier...

A replica mill, made on the site of where one used to be.  There was no wind yesterday morning, so they ran the mill in reverse so the sails would turn.  The opening ceremony was quite fun, in a very twee way!

Pierrelatte is quite proud of its various flowery-bits around town, quite understandably.  I passed the below on my way to the supermarket....

I'm based at the Aerodrome for my placement.  Yesterday there was an open day, so I went on a 20-minute flight in this plane:

Yes, definitely some good bits! Hope it goes well and they find you a chair!
