Fortunately I was able to contribute to that issue with some of my stories and photos. My photos were published on page 17 (“In their own words”) […]

Things I Will NOT Miss from France

Posted: 22nd September 2010 by Luciano Araujo in Opinion, Summer 2010 in France, Travel

These are some of the things I will not miss from my days in France: My very tiny bed. My very tiny shower where the water drained so slow that I always ended up my showers with water up my ankle. Carrying my groceries for 20 minutes from the supermarket to my room – wine […]

Things I Will Miss from France

Posted: 22nd September 2010 by Luciano Araujo in Opinion, Summer 2010 in France, Travel

Here is a list of the things I will miss the most from my days here in France: Lunch at Supelec. Not having to drive home after partying and drinking all night. Rue de la Soif (Thirsty Street) where a pint of beer is 3E, shots are 2E and where the truuu bohemians from Rennes […]

Road Trip to Bordeaux, France

Posted: 20th August 2010 by Luciano Araujo in Photography, Summer 2010 in France

The lead developer for the EnTiMid project, Gregory, is originally from the Bordeaux region and he was kind enough to setup a road trip to Bordeaux and the region around it. We left Rennes on a Friday morning and headed south for the 6 hour drive to Bordeaux. As we were leaving Rennes, we saw […]

This song was a big hit in the south of France. Enjoy!

I have shared very little regarding my actual work here in Rennes, but I came across these videos, in French, that were recorded in the 2009 Science Fair of Rennes which explain in depth what EnTiMid is. EnTiMid is the system that I have been working on and building the social media bundles for. I […]

Nearly 15 years later I returned to Dublin, Ireland for a weekend trip. Dublin was not one of the places I wanted to visit during my stay here in France, but I happened to jump on this trip as a guest and the plans were already made and the arrangements were very inexpensive. I purchased […]

We booked some real cheap tickets to Dublin, Ireland leaving from Nantes, France which is about 1 hour by car south of Rennes. Since our flight was scheduled for early Saturday, the plan was to spend Friday night and Nantes and get to know the city a bit. The adventure began when we decided to […]

Se Fini le Star de Nuit

Posted: 8th July 2010 by Luciano Araujo in Summer 2010 in France

There is a bus service called “Star de Nuit” which runs from Thrusday through Sunday twice an hour all night long which enables us from the campus to get back home with ease. Unfortunately the city of Rennes interrupts this service from mid July through the end of August due to school vacation. So, starting […]
