This time Cordoba (Spain). Day 5. Wrapping things up.

We arrived at school, mixed feelings on our faces, the work schedule had been pretty intensive and the different meal timetables added an extra bonus to our personal biorythms whose inmediate consequence was light tiredness. However, we set the kids in groups and they worked feverishly to accomplish the last task before saying goodbye. The videos were great and we had a really stirring experience while watching them, we laughed, clapped and gasped in surprise as one. Then we started to hug, kiss, thank and say goodbye. Now there is a lot to ponder and enjoy remembering and still a lot of work to do in our project. Thank you, for being so nice and supportive whatever the difficulty encountered and for your great contributions during this week, we already miss you all!

This time Cordoba (Spain). Day 4

It was quite early in the morning when we met together to get the coach to Granada. Sleepy faces and looks that reflected the excitement from the day before at the Fair of Nation. WE RAISED 920€! We got so happy when we put together all the money raised from the different country delegations stands that we couldn't hide our bewilderement.

However, the trip to Granada was going to exceed our expectations as well. The visit to the Children's Village was so revealing and so real. The educators welcomed us and made us feel at home easily. Lots of questions were put forward and answered promptly, some of the information was very, very moving, however the message of hope was there for everybody to pass on and cling to. They were very surprised at the amount of money we gave them, they could not believe what they were seeing. We said our goodbyes and went on with the little tour through the old quarters.

The sights from San Cristobal viewpoint were terrific! Later on, after lunch, we departed from that point going slowly downhill through long winding whitewashed Andalusian streets. Some free time and back to Cordoba on our coach. What a day!

This time Cordoba (Spain). Day 3.

Wow, it's Wednesday morning and I'm so excited I can't wait to get to school, we've worked hard in our home countries and during the last two days to get everything ready for the Fair of Nations. We must do our best because the money we'll raise would go to Children's Village in Granada. And ... it was more than we could think of, everybody was fantastic and we were overwhelmed by the school students' answer. Kids not only came and bought our products they inquired about our project, our cultures, etc. It was unbelievable!

And this time Cordoba (Spain). Day 1 & 2.

Oooh, it's been such an amazing week, unforgettable, what can I say? Last weekend our guests started to arrive, some by train, some by coach, but on Monday morning our school was something more than just that, a school, and it was enriched by the presence of our guests. We started introducing ourselves with a presentation and we talked about the NGO's we've been helping. In the evening we had a great time together making all the body ornaments we were to sell on Wednesday Fair of Nations.

Next day, Diego Copé, the viceprincipal, took us on a tour in the old jewish quarter, we visited the Mosque and Cathedral, a townhall representative welcomed us at the christian fortress "El Alcazar" and made us see how important is our task and our project. Then we went home to have lunch with our host families. In the evening we finish our craftwork and got every delegation's stand ready for next day.
