I have decided to leave sooner than previously stated. I am taking the advice of certain Anciens and leaving asap - that is tomorrow - in order to avoid the extreme sun in the Summer, which is not a compliment to my fair and sensitive Scandinavian skin. Coming from a Scandinavian country and not being used to extreme heat I think it is better to join before the Summer in order to avoid dehydration etc. due to the restrictions on water drinking etc. in Aubagne. I don't really care-but if it ****s up my medical.....
Tomorrow evening my plane will land in Marseilles - then I will take the bus/or train/or whatever/or maybe march- to Aubagne and then spend one night in a hote. They are quite cheap I have heard, spending one day with sightseeing in Aubagne the following day -and then march by foot to the recruiting center-knock on the door about 4 pm inform them of my deep and sincere wish to join-and then hand over my passport! what a rush!
Is it possible to run or march from Marseilles to Aubagne-or is this less advisable due to heayy traffic etc?
I have considered not to take ANY luggage except from passport, credit card and running shoes which I have on me as they will take everything anyway. However, could this arose suspicion? Could they believe that I am totally nuts, or maybe only VERY motivated, or running from the police?

Good luck to you.
The less you take with you the less they take your stuff, don't give them anything .
