Sunday, March 17th, 2019
First of all the Spainsh people met at Granollers station; we all said goodbye to the family and went to Barcelona airport and we waited for the plane to go to Venice.
We arrived at the airport of Venice and we met the French people.
We were waiting for two vans that would take us to Cividale del Friuli and it took us an hour and a half to get to the city. When we arrived we went to the high school Convitto Nazionale Paolo Diacono, we had diner the Spanish and the French people. When we finished dinner we waited for Italian families at the door of the high school to go each one with their host family.

We went to the high School at 8:00. And we made a visit around the high School, we saw the rooms of the students who live in the school, we also saw some classrooms and they explained to us the history of the CNPD Then, we went to work on the robots and we splitted into two groups, groups one and two stayed in the laboratory below and groups three and four stayed in the laboratory above. At two o'clock in the afternoon we went to eat, we ate at the high school canteen and then we continued working on the robots.
Today we worked and continued with the programmation.
Before noon, we went to a bakery to make some '' Gubanas '' (typical dessert from Friuli), where we laughed a lot and ate freshly made pizza afterwards.
Later we went to visit Cividale del Friuli with our peers and we were talking to each other and went to have some ice cream, spent a few minutes and went to the bank of a river to sit and hang out. We started throwing stones and we invented a game to laugh more among all. The time passed very fast, and then we each went down our paths with our families to go for dinner.

The French and the Spaniards met at school where we were picked up by a bus that took us to Venice. When we arrived in Venice, the first thing we did was to take a train that took us to the center of the city and the guide who accompanied us explained everything that was most important. We took a gondola (it's a traditional rowing boat from Venice) it cost us € 2 per person, just to cross to the other side of the river; We also got on a vaporetto that took us to the bus back to the school where the families picked us up and took us home.

We started the day working with the robots, fixing errors and preparing for the presentation, we had to do in front of people from other classes; in the presentation some robots didn't work but in the end everything went well. After making all the presentations some Spaniards and French people remained at the school playing volleyball. Later, some stayed in Cividale and many others left with their families to later have a dinner all together. Then, we all went outside the bar to play and have fun playing football and talking together.

Finally the day of the farewell came, some of us left in the morning for breakfast and the others stayed with their peers. At 11:00 We all left to say goodbye and take the bus together with the French to go to Venice Airport, which is 1 hour far from Cividale. It was a very hard farewell, although we said we would see each other again in the summer. Later, we were on the bus with the French talking about everything and not wanting to get to the airport. When we arrived, we were hanging around there, and few of us stayed with the French until it was time to say goodbye, we hugged each other and some of us even cried a little. We spent a while among all Spaniards wandering around the shops until it was time to catch our flight. When we arrived in Barcelona, we headed towards the train to Granollers. We arrived at the station and our parents were waiting for us. Finally everybody went home, tired but happy for such a good experience.
