 I had to admit that it was peculiar that me as a cold-climate ecologist visited them during the only icy winter week of the season, but I assure you there is no wizardry involved in my PhD thesis.

I did not mind the cold, though, as long as I see the sun, I am a happy man. I am used to worse from in the field.

Sunny but cold, the Quai Bélu

I ended my visit to Amiens with a presentation of what I currently discovered about plants dealing with cold temperatures in the mountains. It was really nice to get a new and interested audience to talk to, and I came home with a lot of new ideas to implement in my research.

That was indeed the whole conclusion of my stay in Amiens: a high-efficiency stay that generated countless new ideas to get the second part of my PhD rolling, thanks to the wisdom and experience of the local scientists.

Looking forward to make all this reality!
