I was surprised that: People throw trash out the window of the bus. There were magazines of almost naked women in the 7 years old classroom.
The most difficult thing: The lack of resources at the center and the poverty the children come from. I found it sad when I saw them playing with paper airplanes all the time
My best received lesson: Honestly, the children and teachers enjoyed it all. The children probably loved the parachute with balls on top the most. They loved laying on the ground and watching the parachute above then going up and down
Personal paragraph: I had an incredible week, it was exactly what I hoped it would be. I have made wonderful memories, learned a ton, and will go home with new eyes once again. Obviously I enjoyed my time with Vanessa, the ABV Director (and host). I felt very at home and loved all of our conversations. She taught me a lot and made my experience in a foreign country a comfortable one. I will look forward to keeping in contact with her.
Comment of Coordinator: Dear Sarah and Oliver i really enjoyed a lot the company of Jessica. For me this was also a really good experience to have for few days a house guest of my age to share visions about life, culture, experiences. She is a very kind woman with a lot of energy and will to collaborate. I hope she can be in contact with you in the future cause she mentioned she would like to repeat a experience with ABv in other country. Regards, Vanessa
