Thursday 3 April: this meant I had a medical check-up scheduled for 3pm in Bordeaux. The medical is one of the requirements for my application for the Carte de Séjour (residency permit). Ange's appointment was also scheduled today but we cancelled it as someone had to mind the kids after school.
The appointment was laid back and the main aim is to check for Tuberculoses, which I can now confirm I don't have. Phew. Quite an expensive setup though: a radiography facility used exclusively for checking residence applicants. Anyway, I was just pleased that I can now "tick the box" and move on to the next requirement.
Main Attractions: Shopping (Rue Ste-Catherine). The art gallery is supposed to be very good but I didn't have enough time. There are lots of old churches. You definitely see influences from Spain and North Africa in the people and architecture.
