It’s KULMUN Newswire Mobility week in collaboration with LOKO, the KU Leuven student organisation. Alexandra writes from her super cosy apartment in Paris, in the Marais neighbourhood. She spends this semester abroad in Paris thanks to the European Union’s ERASMUS exchange programme. Her stay has so far been great, she can only recommend that you do it too. It offers the opportunity to experience a new city, a new culture and new friends.
