This the story of a beautiful girl that i met during my trip to Pau. I will try to share these kind of stories more often, I personally love meeting new people and hear their stories. It makes you see life from a different angle, sometimes It will make you more grateful for what you have, other times, it will motivate you and in this case it will leave you speechless !
On September the 6th I took the TGV (train à grande vitesse = super speed train) from Paris to Bordeaux, I visited the town quit beautiful, charming but i had to leave soon because I am heading to Pau (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) near Spain.

The ice is almost broken, I started asking here some general question so i can know her a little bit better. Then if she eventually can help me to visit the town. “Are you going home or visiting someone ?” I asked thinking that she is from where we going. “No, I am going to the detention center !” she responded in a sad way. I didn’t pay much attention to here response but then she started explaining. Here is here story …
