    <p>For the day waiting for us, all of the students had to wake up SO early. But it was worth it.  Indeed, we went to the Imperial College London where we had a little presentation of design engineering by Jamie. Afterward we had a magnificent contest in which all the participants had to create a robot that had to be driven ahead, turn then come back to the departure line. The best robot was made by Hugo L, Mathieu, Robin, Gaetan and Nicolas because they had found a perfect solution to fox to wheels to the motors' axis. Unfortunately the contest was won shortly won by an another robot. <br> The next stop on our list was the Science Museum which present the history of sciences and its applications.They do introduce the sciences through animation, game, brands etc... They are different subject in the museum such as steam engines, clockwork, airplanes, energy, medicine and so much more.<br> To finish the day we had an hour to spent in Kensington<br> However the trip back to the family meeting point was very very long because of the traffic </p> <p> </p> <p>This story was brought to you by Gaetan, Nicolas and Hugo L </p>

    <p>Bathed in the light of a gorgeous sunrise, way too early for most of us, we were all gathered in La Part Dieu's train station. After one hour and a half of waiting, filled with card games and stuff, we began our epic journey. Our goal : to reach London in one piece. The first step was kind of easy. We just had to find the right train, and then go inside of it. At this moment ,everything was perfect. Moreover, we had a really good time playing Coinch with two really tied sets of 1000 pts. Everything was perfect expect for one little detail : Erwan was missing ! Oh no, nevermind, it's too early. Let's go back to our story. At noon, we arrived in Lille. Nice train station. A bit small, but some persons -we won't name these person to insure their safety- still managed to loose their path through it. Indeed, Hector and Nicolas were 10 minutes late, but they had bought a Burger King, which is nice. Our amazing team of great young people full of curiosity reached here the second test, the border between France and England. It wasn't that much of a problem since the security guards weren't that strong -just kidding of course-. After a few steps through this unknown land that England is, we found a table. That was a really weird table. After some investigation, we decided to get closer to it. What we found there was amazing : a bag full of candies. What a wonderful country ! But as we had no time to slow down, we kept going. Finding the right train wasn't even a problem here since they were only one possibility. Two hours and a few Tarot's games later, we reached St Pancras' train station. Truely a very very very beautiful train station, huge spaces, a structure made out of glass and steel as it was made in the late XIX century. In order to go to our rendez-vous with our bus driver, we went through a shop center. It is already Christmas around here ! We rode in London, looking at the buildings and the two-floor buses. Then we stopped at Trafalgar Square, near the National Gallery. We had 40 minutes of free time for everyone, except for the marvelous Erwan who took 20 extra minutes. We then flew away to the Tate Modern. The smartest ones of us would go directly to the very top of the building to enjoy London's skyline's beauty at night -17h- As the day was getting a bit long and tiring, some of us took a nap in the bus before meeting the host families. At this point, we went in our host families and ended the day well fed and well showered.</p> <p>To be continued during the daily epic newsletter from the magnificent Euro class of the Lycée La Martinière Diderot.</p> <p> </p> <p>This episode was brought to you by Hector, Robin and Théotime.</p>

    <p>We left the station Part Dieu this morning and arrived in Lille at noon. After eating we took the Eurostar and got in London at 2 o'clock (local Time). We met Chris, our coach driver, who is quite talkative and friendly. We had some free time around Trafalgar Square and next we headed to the Tate Modern Gallery and went up the museum to enjoy the fantastic view of London by night!</p> <p>Right now we are enjoying some quiet time in our host families!</p> <p>To be continued...</p> <p>The Dream Team (Mrs Campagnolo, Mrs Massard and Mrs Bois)</p>
