Last week I was in the Arrival Training corresponding to one of the compulsory activities of the European voluntary program (compose by arrival training + mid term evaluation). Was developed in the city of Warsaw and I was sharing doubts, concerns and experiences with volunteers from different countries (Macedonia, Portugal, Russia, Georgia ...) who are developing their work in different localities of Poland.

One of the most interesting things for me was to discover the different points of view each had about the country that is currently welcoming us. I also had the opportunity to discover Polish culture visiting the city of Warsaw and attending a local folklore performance (it was great!)

Definitely it was a way to immerse in the Polish culture and how the European activities are developing in Poland. I hope to discover every day a little more of this country that, for a year, will be my home :)

Here some pics about what the week was like and what we did ;)
