From Delhi to Paris and Vatel Nîmes

After a few cold sweats and sleepless nights awaiting their visas our 17 students and Director of Programme Amnreesh Misra have finally boarded their flight and reached Paris safely on Sunday 4th June early morning.

From Delhi to Paris and Vatel Nîmes

Everyone was fresh and happy although the night was short and Amreesh Sir had a hard time keeping his “troops” together, indeed the excitement of discovering a new place had overcome the fatigue.

But the trip was not over yet as the students of Vatel School of Hotel Management at Ansal University still had to board a TGV (bullet) train to reach their final destination Nîmes.

After a short 3 and ½ hours they were at Vatel Nimes, boys and girls were famished and without further ado they were “en route” for the student cafeteria, the food was appreciated although some thought it lacked a bit of “mirch”, welcome to France, one will have to adapt to the local fare…

Everyone received the key to their room but resting was not in the agenda, better to head to the center of town to witness the famous “Feria de Nimes” the 65 years old festival.

Bull fights, horse shows, dance and concerts are the main attraction of the Spanish influenced annual fair.

It was now time for a well-deserved rest and tonight it is safe to say that no commotion will disturb the peace in the student’s residence!

Tomorrow meeting with Patricia Esbrayat, stay tuned for the next episode of our students’ saga!
