"The Foyer" was my home for 6 months
"The Foyer" was my home for 6 months. It was the first time for me to leave far from my family, but in “the foyer” I found friends that I will have for ever. It’s really nice to come back from the work and have diner with your friends or to run to see your favorite tv programme next door. In summer, the garden becomes the most comfortable place in“the foyer”. “The foyer” counts a lot of activities, especially during the night. The workers are always available to listen to you if you have some propositions, so, do not hesitate to parcipate.
