Exiting day with international groups of students and techers in Prague. Learning to photograph buildings in lead of Anna Lara Feldekova.

Today’s programme included lectures in the School Michael so we made our way there first. Anna, teacher of photography, gave us a lesson about photography. Students were supposed to go to take some photos about certain buildings or environment in Prague. During the lesson Anna told us tips how to take good photos for example if like at this time of the year when the light is not best possible. The tips were certainly needed because the weather was very grey. And for me the advices of taking good photos were very much welcome because I am an amateur in these substances. The exiting part of the lesson was the lottery, which group gets which building. At least there was Petrin tower and Dancing House as prices. On Friday we will see the results of their shooting session. After lunch at school students went to town in their international groups. Meanwhile teachers had discussions about this project with Lenka, who is the coordinator of Czech team.

In the afternoon Mira, Pekka and me visited the Mucha museum. The works of arts by Alphons Mucha were very beautiful and full of specific details. Some money was also spent in the shop of Mucha Museum.

After the museum we had a fast pit stop at the hotel and then it was time to go to dinner with people of Michael School and other teachers from Slovakia and Hungary. Unfortunately the hungarian team was switching the teacher on Wednesday and they couldn’t participate to dinner. Regardless of that we had very nice evening in Mexican restaurant. Even new project was planned so hopefully the co-operation continues in the next projects also. The Mexican restaurant located near the modern Church, which Anna introduced us in the day’s lesson.

The day was again fulfilled with new experiences, places and people. Students had their own free time and it has been so nice to see that they are getting along better and better all the time. The team spirit is growing.
