Hello! I am Vika and I am an alcoholic. It’s hard to restrain alcohol in such weather )) Instead of lying on a beach I work as a workhorse in a village called Wimereux right on the back of the English channel.
We are having good time in a volunteer camp in France. Me and Dasha, my friend.
I woke up in a tent alone. Dasha had left earlier to make breakfast. Mess in the girls’ tent.
Dressing. The sneakers do not look good after the rain of yesterday.
Having breakfast. I drink from the cup I had bought for 1 euro at the garage sale.
Snail on the cup of my neighbour
The weather is bad today so it means we won’t work, hurray!
In general we have three orders daily – cleaning, cooking and washing.
We decided to go to Lille today by autostop.
There at last. Very beautiful around. And here is our working place – forte de la crèche. It was built in the epoch of Napoleon and was used as a military fort.
We’ll start from here
Auto stop was luckier this time. Only three cars and we were there.
At the station. Heading to the centre of the city where we see this wonderful church. It was the first time I saw a children’s corner in a church.
Breakfast in the city
Look in a toilet)
By the way Lille is a city of tiny toilets. Have to buy some postcards.
Trying things out in s shop! Discounts!
Beautiful French architecture in Lille
What a handsome boy on the bank advertising
I didn’t like souvenirs of Lille much
Fresh bread is an integral part of France
Some reading on the way
How wonderful it would be to go to London right now! It’s possible in fact in Calais.
Back in our village
Cat at the station
Shower before eating
Wine and heart-to-heart talks
Going to visit an amusement park
In the camp party is not over. But they have run out of alcohol
Conversations. It’s so good we won’t have to wake up early tomorrow.
Time to say goodbye and go to sleep.
