Coinciding with the return trip, the lately famous Icelandic volcano (we bet you won’t be able to neither spell it nor pronounce it corretly) decided to produce a vast ash cloud prevent air navigation throughout Europe. This fact forced us to stay in Izmir much more time than expected and finally started an unplanned route via Munich and Barcelona, combining air and rail. Arriving home several days later is nothing compared with the lengthy and complicated trip back to their countries that most of our partners had. Some of them even had to charter coaches that departed from their countries in order to meet the delegations at different places in Europe somewhere in the way back. So we cannot complain much after all.

From 13 to April 16, delegations from all partners held a meeting in Izmir Fen Lisesi from Izmir in Turkey. Our colleagues, students and teachers from the host Turkish school did an excellent job and treated us wonderfully.
Our delegation consisted of four students and three teachers.
While teachers worked in the evaluation of the project and the work done during the school year, and designing tasks for the year-end and the next school year, students performed various activities, including the wall painting that we see in the photos, processing and presentation of activities on the theme of equality and human rights and the presentation of the summary of activities undertaken during this course.
Finally, we went on a tour of the impressive ruins of Ephesus together with the students and teachers of our host school in Izmir
