Testimony from a participant of the last trip in Normandie:
"Thanks to Alliance française, Manchester and the hard work of Cyrille Rollet I was privileged to experience some unique aspects of France and French life not available anywhere else."
"Aspects of French culture alongside art, geography and history were all put into context."

If you are not convinced yet, have a listen to Claude Nougaro who declare his love for Toulouse (with lyrics):

Qu’il est loin mon pays, qu’il est loin
Parfois au fond de moi se raniment
L’eau verte du canal du Midi
Et la brique rouge des Minimes
Ô mon pays, ô Toulouse...
