Hello from Bulgaria! Plovid is the city of culture, delicous food and night life. Our group was happy to travel to Plovdiv on the 4th July. Me and four boys in our Czech team were curious about project „Not all heroes wear suits“that ended 12th July. The teams constisted of Czechs, Italians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Greeks and Macedonians.
First we played games to get know each other. These activites seemed to me very funy and wonderful. We became part of big family. Everyone loved game called „secret friend“. The participants got paper with name and they had to care about this person. It was so kind!
During the sessions we tried to concentrate on the interesting topic. The groups talked about current issues like a racism, pollution, extremism and climate change. I am happy to say we learnt many useful phrases and vocabulary.
The cherry on the top was interculture night. Greeks showed us traditional dance. Italian played scene how they beahve in the night club. We laughed all the time. Unfortunately the internet didn´t work and I felt so sad because me and Tom prepared questions&answers on Kahoot. Fortunately we brought great refreshment and everybody enoyed it.
I wasn´t only team leader even I photographed during the schedule. Taking photos is my passion.
The Czech team introduced companies like Rohlík.cz or Kiwi.com. Some of the participants were surprised that Kiwi. com is ours! Our boys showed us their excellent knowledge of English. In the end of the project we had to introduce our own business. We wore formal clothes and spoke in front of the jury. I am proud of Czech team.
Now, we are back in our homes and try to live better and more ecologic. After summer vacation we can share our experience with classmates. We record the video and post on the Instagram or Facebook.
I am grateful to EYCB that we could involve this amazing project. You are doing very well!
