Hey!Another weekend passed by. A great time and so many things to talk about!On Friday Lenni and I got really lucky and had a doctor taking us to and back from the hospital. AC yes! Surgery was nice but not too interesting. After that we left straight to Unawatuna and luckily met the other girls in the bus. The whole afternoon we stayed at the beach tanning, chatting and swimming. For dinner we went to the “Pink elephant” where we ate last time we were there and had a nice chicken kebap! More protein that I got the whole month probably. Even mozzarella sticks – a dream! We had a nice evening and some drinks at a bar right at the beach. Take care of your feed!
Next morning we woke up early and had a nice breakfast with brown bread and fruits! An iced coffee (my favorite drink by the way) to go leaving to Hikkaduwa. Fortunately, we were able to stay in our favorite place called “Top secret” even though they said they would have no more rooms when I called them. We tanned again the whole afternoon and then made ourselves ready for the big birthday party in the evening. It was weird to put make-up on and my powder was even too white for me! The evening was amazing! A lot of fun and at twelve we all celebrated Mie´s birthday!
Next day we laid at the beach again and needed to say goodbye to Lena! Very sad moment! Unfortunately, it was mixed with the anger about three denish girls from projects abroad we met the evening before that didn’t pay their bill.From Hikkaduwa eight of us went off to the Singharaja Rainforest. All of us were really tired but we still talked after dinner and went to bed at 10. Our beds were really small and we just had one blanket we needed to share (at the next morning we got to know that there were extra ...
The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul (Dieter F.Uchtdorf). Being creative means we need to let go of all the constraints, fears and problems we might think we have. Being creative means letting our immagination flow, breathe and play, as it wishes. Creativity means we need to allow ourselves to be children again, and by that, I mean we need to rediscover the beauty of being innocent, pure and trully happy.
If you love being creative and if you use all your ideas into making crafts, recycling things in a creative way, designing, painting, trimming, mixing, cutting, gluing and so on, then come celebrate the Day of Creativity with 'Galeria Creativ' and 'Incubator 107'.

Mathis Dumont, volontaire français, mission enseignement au Togo.
Arrivé le premier avril de cette année, j’ai décidé de partir au Togo pendant deux mois. Contrairement aux autres membres de l’organisation, ma présence à Lomé se déroule sous forme de stage universitaire afin de valider mon année de Master de Lille 3, en France. Mon choix s’est porté vers l’enseignement, et plus particulièrement celui du français, car ce domaine correspond au mieux mon cursus. Les deux mois se sont passés dans le complexe scolaire La Sagesse à Lomé, au Togo, proche du quartier de Djidjolé. Venant d’un pays qui a la chance de tout posséder, je voulais vivre une véritable « claque » cultuelle. Et quelle claque ! A peine les pieds en Afrique, la chaleur, le bruit des voitures, motos et passants, l’architecture, la conduite, mais surtout les relations humaines m’ont énormément surpris. Être en totale immersion dans une famille d’accueil permet de mieux assimiler la culture togolaise. Le français a beau être la langue officielle (qui est très peu usitée entre habitants, qui parlent éwé), le Togo n’a absolument rien à voir avec la France. Concernant le stage, il consistait à préparer et présenter des cours de français et élaborer des projets culturels en lien avec la francophonie. Cependant, la crise dans le monde éducatif dans le Togo n’a pas aidé à ce que ce stage se passe dans des conditions optimales : fermetures des écoles de Lomé, puis dans le tout le Togo, que ce soit les écoles publiques que privées. Heureusement, grâce à l’efficacité de Projects Abroad, j’ai pu retrouver un endroit pour continuer l’enseignement ; l’orphelinat REMAR. Et une fois de plus, une autre claque, moins agréable, fut de voir les ...
Although I have eaten Thai food for my whole life but every time I go to the restaurant and order “Pad Thai”, it’s still the best food in the whole world for me. I get excited before my food comes and I am always both happy and sad after I finish my meal. Why? First I am happy because I have the best food in the world but meanwhile I am sad because my food is over. Oh well, I feel like I will never have shared enough experience about how much I love Thai food. There are so many good dishes and so much to talk about. I am not saying I love Thai food because I am Thai and I grew up with these foods but because of its aromatic and mellow favors. Anyway let me start sharing my knowledge and experience about my favorite dish “Pad Thai”
Pad Thai is one of the most popular traditional Thai dishes made of stir fried noodle, vegetable and chicken/pork/meat/tofu or seafood. It popularity started early in ancient Siam time (long long time ago). It is very easy to cook and all the ingredients needed are cheap and easy to find. I am pretty sure it’s also easy to cook too because all you need to do is just stir fry them in a pan and mix everything together. I will make a list of things you need in order to cook Pad Thai
- Vegetable oil
- chicken/pork/meat/tofu or seafood (this one is up to your preference)
- minced garlic
- rice noodle or grass noodle (I prefer grass noodle)
- soy sauce
