On 24 October, the Agence ITER France invited the wives of the growing international ITER staff for a 'Discovery Day' around the ancient cities of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille. Thirteen ladies from India, Japan, Canada, the United States, Korea and Europe plus three children took the opportunity.
On foot they first discovered the medieval lanes of Aix, led by an official guide. Then they drove to Marseille to explore the vibrant silhouette of Europe's third biggest harbour, climbed Notre Dame de la Garde and finally they were shown the best places to buy fresh fish, exotic spices and fine clothing. By the end of the day, they decided to create an "Association of ITER spouses".
