So, I’ve lived in France for two whole months now. What can I say? It’s been a whirlwind. A whirlwind of meeting tons of lovely new people, exploring new places and… (I have to admit) huge, huge piles of paperwork. One thing that all of us ERASMUS students seem to have noticed here in France is that they love their bureaucracy. You will quickly find yourself caught up in vicious circles of paperwork and on goose chases for some random piece of paper without which you won’t be able to do something vital… It’s all very strange.
