Latvian team impressions about meeting in Italy

  1. 1. Our impressions of the international meeting in Italy This year we – pupils from Form 8 – Iveta, Elizabete, Elina and Karina participate in the Comenius project “The Voices from the Land”. We visited Rome (the capital city of Italy) in May (with 3 teachers from our school - Daugavpils Saskanas basic school). It took us the whole day to arrive here, but it was really exciting. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the sea and forests. The sights were so fascinating, we felt like we were in wonderland. When we arrived, we were very nervous because we had not seen our families yet, but then we discovered that Italian people are really friendly and good-natured. It was easy to get used to their climate and traditions, because as I said families were so unsophisticated. It was a little bit strange that we started to eat at about nine o’clock, but everything was absolutely delicious. We went to the Ostia Antica - it is an ancient city near the sea. The guide described us how ancient people lived, he told us about their daily routine. After that we went to the sea, where we had a free time. Also we went to the Vatican, where we visited famous Sistine Chapel, Raffaello Rooms, St. Peter’s Basilica. We were amazed, how talented and patient people were at those times. It took 15 years at hard work to decorate some rooms. And of course we were amazed by Michelangelo works. Also we visited Rome, we saw the Coliseum, Fori Imperiali, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna and St. John Lateran’s Basilica. And of course we tasted the best Italian ice-cream. It’s all about trips. But we have so much fun working on the project in school. And of course families, we became really good friends. When we had to leave Italy, we were crying, because they became to us like our own family. We will never forget our trip to Italy, it was one of the best experiences in our lives. Rome is a beautiful city, Italians are beautiful people. It wasn’t hard to communicate with everybody in English, we have learnt a bunch of new Italian words, and we are very thankful to this project. It was an amazing trip!
