In Norway

Hej, hu mar du ? It’s Cyril again, and i twill be my writting for the evs blog for the period of 21th november until 28th november. It was not the most active week in my work, but we get some day off, good occasion to take à 24h nap. And, above all, to continue my visit of the north europa, next step, Norway.

But, for the beginning, let’s talk about my second project in my work (kooperativet fjället). It was a degustation of some crêpes, french speciality, honestly, it w as not so much a succees, for some reason :

  • Maybe the communication around (my poster) was not so good, so we don’t get so much kids, (specials thanks to my bro Kim, always here in hard times)
  • Unfortunatelly I missed a little my receipe, i’ve thinked about that, it was about flur (too much), but Kim get one of them and he told me that’s was good, so 10% succes it’s a beginning

Maybe for my next project i have to stay far from the kitchen, so yes it sounds good.

The rest of the week was some kind of quiet, i wish a good retablishment to our teammate jenny who’s sick. And hope she can get back soon.

So, now let’s talk about norway. It was amazing, and i’m thinking actually of organised a travel with kids, i need time to plan that good (and help plz), cause i twill be hard, and it have to be secure for kids. But I really want to do that, cause I know how travel can change you’re minds and open new horizons (especially for kids). And as Sven said « One of the goals of the kooperatvet fjället is to send the kids out of angered » maybe it was more about sending them to an EVS project, but I think it will be a good beginning, who can give the travel taste to the kids.

I was in Oslo during the week of 16 to 20th november. My challenge was to visited all the cool places without google map, with just a paper plan, and it was a succes.

First I visited the national opera, build in 2008, it’s a modern structure who takes place in a kind of new « city » of oslo, like we can find in London, or in Paris (La Défense). So it’s really amazing to see how modern architecture is combined with old building, but it was a bit weird. At least it was organised, not as I seen in Bucharest. The modern buildings take a special place in the city, so we can’t write about a « mix », it’s more an add-on.

After I visited the Akershus castle, and the museum of national army of norway

It was interesting, this was a resume of all war of norway, this country takes part in so much war it’s amazing. I see many many beautiful old weapons.

After crossing the city randomely, I finished to meet some graffers, and find a beautiful neighbourg similar to christiana in copenhagen. Governement of norway give them free wall to paint and express their mind, cool stuff.

Stay tunned, for new adventures ! hej da

José in Stockholm

Hej!

I haven´t been here for some weeks, how have you guys been? Hope your weeks have been awesome as well 😀

I was in Stockholm with my french friend Cyril for a week, in volunteer meeting with people from all over the world, like Lebanese, French, Italian, Russian, Lithuanian, etc! Stockholm was a really cool and friendly city, with a lot of awesome buildings and cool places to go! Ah, me and Cyrill spent two nights in jail also! Not funny

Here you have some photos:

The big thing that happened, this month, was the disco night, it was great! Our disco group organized it and it was full of people and everyone had a lot of fun! They sold candies and some food and drinks to the visitors, had special place to put the jackets and we also had snow for that week! Check it out!

Visiting Stockholm

Ok, now there is a new part of the blog. How are you ? You can´t answer but good I hope. Let me introduce you to my visit of Stockholm first. We was in Stockholm last week, to take part of the EVS training. And now you think what is the EVS training, no ?

EVS training is like a meeting, with many young volunteer like me and Jose (but not cool as us) who take part on a EVS project. You know probably that I come from France, and Jose from Portugal. We are here to work for one year in Fjället, taking care of you, kids. So we meet some people  who are doing the same job, but in different cities in Sweden.

Ok, now, let`s talking about Stockholm. First, it`s a very beautiful city, maybe one of the most beautiful that I`ve visit. Some beautiful building, and an old architecture in couple with modernity.

After that, I visited the archipelago close to Gothemburg, Bränno and Björkö, this was my first contact with the snow in Sweden. It was really really cold, more than gothemburg, but very quiet and beautiful. People here are a little different then the ones in Gothemburg, it seems they live like a small community. Find a nice point of you, I don`t remember the name so sorry.

After in Fjället, during the girls night of Wednesday, we had  the luck of have a lunch prepared by Elin. It was chicken cooked with two different sauce, one based on pepper, and another one based on cream. It was really good and the chicken was perfectly cooked.

Portugese day

Hej!

This last weeks have been crazy and full of new experiences!

Last week, on Friday I had the Portuguese Day and we had a lot of kids 😀

I did some cookies and they ended in 10 minutes because the kids loved it! They also loved the traditional Portuguese candy called “Flocos de Neve”. In the background, during the opening time, Portuguese music was playing!

It went really good and we all had a good time!
