From Dublin to London

Yesterday we arrived in London, had dinner, and went to Waterloo to have a breath-taking view of London at sunset from the London Eye. After that, we walked by the Big Ben, Tower of Parliament and Westminster, and through the very centre of the city, before we went back to the hotel.
Today, we had a hectic day. In the morning we went to Buckingham Palace. The crowd could be discouraging at this time of the year, but we managed to make it. After that, lunch in St James Park and a visit to the London Vaults. Most of them enjoyed it a lot and they got really scared. Gabriela laughed a lot at them. After a stop at the hotel, we went to meet people at Futureversity for an exchange. We ended up going for dinner with 29 young leaders from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We hope that multicultural London becomes a chance for our group to start accepting diversity, which is one of the most important aims of the programme.

We spent a wonderful day in Dublin on Monday 26th July.
In the morning we went to Croke Park, one of biggest stadiums in Europe. We had lunch and walked through the streets of Dublin to the Guinness Storehouse. After that we went to a GAA club where Cormack introduced Irish sports such us gaelic football and hurling. A group of Irish teenagers spent the day with us and shared sports dinner, Irish dancing, Argentine presentation and loads of fun with us.
Thanks Elaine, John, Eoin, Maraid, Cormack, the dancers and everyone at the Na Fianna Club.
