Sunny days have finally arrived to Strasbourg and with them, the lasts months of my stay in Strasbourg.
During the last two and a half years, I have learnt not only different imaging techniques such as CT and SPECT but also the French culture. I've learnt the language; the traditions and I've tasted some great Alsatian wine. I have also learnt how to deal with the rain and with very long, dark cold days.
Besides, I've had the chance to visit lovely French villages, which look like typical fairy tales villages, with colourful houses and wooden beams.
In the lab, it has arrived the moment when you have to sit down and write down your first paper. At first, I thought it would be an easy thing; I knew well my project and my results, but when I opened a new, white paper and I had to start, I realised that it was not that easy. When you write a paper, you have to overthink and try to write the most suitable sentences in order to make your paper understandable. And when you think you have finished, you have to face the truth: the corrections from your supervisors! You may have like 5 rounds of corrections before being approved, but once your supervisors tell you that is a good paper, you feel happy and you think of all the effort you have put on your paper as well as all the time you have spent in the lab to have nice results.
And this brings me to the end of the blog. It's time to be thankful to EuTRiPD and the great opportunity that has given all of us, because we have learnt lots of different lab techniques, different cities around Europe, different cultures, different people and above all, a great team!
