  1. Fantastic - thank you for the recommendation, Yeshu! I agree with you, it's a great day out!

    The last time I was there was one evening last term, for an event called the Nuit des Chercheurs, where all sorts of people from the Universities of Toulouse came and shared lots of their really interesting discoveries with us.
