Une mois Caen

Five unforgettable weeks spent in this beautiful university town, set in a region so full of history and with so many impressions to sense.
I experienced the first early spring, long after schedule this year, from the first freezing mornings in early March I had the chance to watch everything coming slowly to life. Trees, flowers, gardens exploding into a wonderful world of colours and the promising odours of spring.
