  1. Today, I went to the Azalea festival with some international students. I’m here for one semester so I was excited to discover this festival. In fact, it looks like some market places that I can find in my home country. The stands were selling some gadgets that I saw a hundred times in France. But what I liked in this festival was its localisation: downtown Wilmington. And this localisation is making all the difference for me. This place is awesome !
