We took the train to Stockholm at 8h01. After a short walk we arrived in the church where the prince and the princesse get married 10 years ago. Then we visited the Royal Castle with a guide, who explain us the history if this castle and the origin of the family who lives here: the Royal family. There were a lot of paintings and tapestries. The castle is huge and beautiful, but rather dark because they keep the curtains closed with the aim not to damage the paintings and others decorations.

After that, a woman receive us at the Nobel museum for a very interesting visit. She told us about its inventor and its beginning. There are six different fields: medicine, physique, chemestry, peace, litterature and economics. Each year, they attribute them to the people who made huge things in the different fields, according to a committee of five persons from the Swedish Academy and from Norway for the Nobel peace prizes. She gave us a lot of very interesting informations, anecdotes and at the end, we were free to visit it by our own. There are some screens in which each person who won a Nobel prize is listed. With an explanation of the reason why they receive it, their life and their work. Then we had two hours to eat and walked around Stockholm, if we wanted to, or stay in the museum.
The afternoon we went on boat tour to discover Stockholm with another point of view, its multiple islands and many explanations. It was really beautiful. We finally came back to Eskilstuna by train and spent the night in our family.

This morning every student went to the classes with their exchange students and had a lunch. During the classes we could see the main differences between French classes and Swedish lessons.

Every Swedish student has a computer, some textile and cooking classes and the last but not the least during music classes the Swedish learn how to play a lot of instruments.

After lessons, at 12:30, we walked to Lilla Nyby, one of the two recycling centers in Eskilstuna. In Lilla Nyby after a short presentation about the importance of recycling, we visited the center. The process is simple: an electronic "eye" differentiates the different kinds of trash thanks to the color of the bags then separates them. There are seven colors: green for wood waste, orange for plastics, blue for newspapers, yellow for cardboard, brown for metal, pink for textile, white for leftover waste. Each type of waste is treated as it needs and some objects are sent to ReTuna, a second-hand specialized shop. On the way back to the Internationella Engelska Skolan (the Swedish school collaborating with Alain-René Lesage) we walked by Vilsta, a sport center with an artificial ski slope. Tomorrow we are heading to Stockholm and leave Eskilstuna at 8:01.

Ce matin on a été au lycée à 8h dans la classe de nos correspondants puis on s’est rejoint à 9h dans le hall pour partir visiter une petite ville historique. On a mangé là-bas et nous nous sommes arrêtés dans un “salon de thé” pour manger des viennoiseries. 

Ensuite nous sommes allés voir l’extérieur d’une usine de gâteaux et avons marché sur le lac.
