It’s taking me a long time to post, so I have to clarify that I am not becoming French. The problem is that the internet connection here is really bad. Like one of my roommates said, I feel like I’ve gone back 20 years in time. No joke.

Anyways, after the “sacred” break, I ended up going to a sort of library: la mediatheque.


It is a beautiful place in the middle of a huge garden. It somewhat reminded me of the Beast’s library in the Disney version of “Beauty and the Beast”.

Although my trip here was just to get some basic information, it was nonetheless a productive one. I found some interesting facts about Cannes’ history and the general French population. For example, did you know that one in every four French people is involved in a benevolent activity?


I interpret this to be a good start of the investigation.
