Where are the charities?

I set out to find more interviews today.

I felt like a typical tourist with my huge map in hand; and after roaming around the streets, I finally found le boulevard de Lorraine. But, to my surprise, the organization I was looking for (J’avais faim) was only a sign on a door and an empty room! Great.

Then I decided to visit la rue de Mimosas, which is parallel to the street I was on, to look up two other charities. I didn’t have any more luck. Secours Catholique (Cannes) was closed and Peace United Actions was also nonexistent.
