The activity was rich and complete. We were able to discover a fishing boat worthy of the name with the originality of having elements specific to the hospital world. A certain authenticity emerges from this place. However, it would be greatly appreciated to understand the stories of the boat in multiple languages, which was not always the case in writing (in French for example)
