Welcome to Crolles
If you imagine a line drawn through Grenoble, extending south through Echirolles where I live and north through Crolles where I tutor on Wednesdays, and turn it on it's side, you'll create something of a spectrum. On one side, Echirolles: the lower socio-economic area with difficult schools and a really popular (and catchy) song dedicated to the victims of a shooting two years ago. On the other, Crolles: a suburb surrounded by beautiful mountains, full of houses where every parent is either a doctor or an engineer who eats organic, and every child seems to be signed up for two sports, an instrument, private tutoring sessions and yoga. At least, that's the impression I get from tutoring six kids up there. Sorry fir the crappy video quality, and that it's on it's side...I don't technology very well.
