The afternoon was spent in workshops and coordination meetings and, in the evening, our new Hannover friends had prepared a story telling Café where they talked about their German History through their own stories of life: the war, the reconstruction of the country, the Berlin Wall...
On Saturday morning, each group presented their work. It was time to share experiences and learn some more about each partner country. Here we are presenting our model of the Douro Valley!
The last hours of our visit were spent visiting the city. The whole experience was really great!
