Today we had agreed to meet the exchange students and other buddies in the city park in Geel, unfortunately not everyone could be there. We were going to do a city game, we divided ourselves into groups of 4 people as it should be according to the corona measures and went to explore Geel. In Geel there are QR codes in different places that you can scan and watch a movie, the movies were in Dutch so we translated what was told in the movie after watching it. There were also questions for each movie so we could get to know each other better. One of the questions was who you looked up to this was a very nice question and so we got to know each other in a very different way.
There was also a question ‘describe what drink you are’ we all took an alcoholic drink which was funny.
It was raining and after a visit to the music school, the Nieuwstraat and the Saint-Aloyuis all the groups ended up in the Irish Pub on the market in Geel where we could take shelter from the rain, very coincidentally the owner of the Irish pub is an old exchange student and he wanted to help us organize something. I was in a group with Faidra and Piotr. Faidra is also a buddy normally she went to Finland on exchange but because of corona this didn’t happen. Piotr is an exchange student from Poland and he has opened his own company there and so sometimes he travels back home for his company and to arrange things.
