Julia in El Salvador - update 1

Hello everybody!

Today we spent our first day at the three schools – I think it was as exciting for us as for the children. They were expecting us already when our bus arrived there. I felt very happy when I realized how easy it is to get in touch with the kids.

They love playing football, and they are excellent. The little ones of six years painted pictures, the older children learned some English words, saw a presentation of the different European countries, showed us how to dance and got to know a German dance, the "dance of the ducks". We did an English lesson with ninth grade, and they did very well.

All the children seem to be very keen on learning something – no matter what it is. After school we spent the evening in the garden of our hotel talking about our experinece. The group is fantastic, we all get along very well, and it feels like a big family. Over here it is time to go to bed. Sleep well!
