Comenius Meeting "BIH" in Trieste (4th day) and back home

Friday, 18th November, our last day in Italy

Venice is very near Trieste. We went there by train. We enjoyed the canals and the magnificent buildings such as the palazzos and churches you can see from the vapporetto- the water bus-
We saw the gondolas and their sailors in striped t-shirts rowing without rest but with charm. We saw the old and new bridges, all beautiful and spiring. And of course, St. Marcos, a great cathedral, so bright and different with oriental byzantine influences.
Our Turkish colleagues-Sezen and friends- stayed on in Venice to return to their country from there. The rest of us, Marie, Romina, Hannelore, Amgard, Barbara, Melita, Iana, Boris...and Antonio, J. Angel and I, went for a dinner in Trieste, to say goodbye for now, although we are going to keep in contact all the time on the internet, by e-mail and through the Project Web and blog.

On the trip back to Cartagena, Saturday, 19th November

At the end of our trip we were exhausted. We had hardly slept during the previous days, and we even thought in English, the language we had used almost all the time to communicate to most of our European friends, but we were satisfied. These days had been great due to the very good organization of the meeting by Barbara and her colleagues, the wonderful atmosphere among the members of our working group, all the work we had done and the agreements reached, all the interest about our common aims and the beautiful places and people we had got to know.

We hope the "Believing in Humanity" Comenius Project will produce in our schools, teachers and specially students, a greater awareness of solidarity and that our help, in one way or another , will get to people in need.
