Music and London is a great love story. Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, all marked the history of music, and all made their first steps in music in London. The city evolved with the rhythm of that music from various origins. Today, the British electronic scene is one of the most legendary and accurate in the world, and it is in London that DJs are practising their sets. In mythical clubs such as the Fabric or the Village Underground. It seems impossible to go inside these temples of electronic music without wanting to come back, again and again.
This morning, I sit in this tiny café. In this tiny street of this town that has become so tiny. I’m vaguely trying to do my work. This coffee I’m drinking, I do not think it is good; in Paris, I would have hated it. Yet here I love it. Like this chair wobbly, uncomfortable, and those passers-by who became friends, ye I do not know them. At home, we ignore the people that have crossed; we certainly don’t invest the time to sit and admire them. It’s strange, but I needed to love the people who live here; those who have always lived here, been here three months, arrived yesterday, those who will depart tomorrow and those who will remain all their lives.
Moving into a new property can be a time of nail-biting anxiety for anyone. For students, it can be ten times worse. It may only be the first or second time you’ve tackled moving into a new home, and maybe the first you’ve done it without the help of your family. As well arranging moving into a new property, tackling property solicitors for the first time, and perhaps moving to an entirely new area, you have to worry about what may seem like the end of the world: the final property inspection.
The Erasmus program has changed the lives of over 3 million students. While they were abroad in Porto as Erasmus student, Julie, Niels and Anna did not want to leave the city without recording what they lived.
