Diary about Polish – Cypriot students’ exchange 2013/2014 part 1 - Cyprus
„Dear diary...” „Dear diary...” It starts as usual entry in a diary... but this presentation is only a small part of what happened during the exchange in Cyprus. It‘s a description of the events, but the real memories are permeated with too many emotions to be easily described here... There are no words to define some of these events...
Today we are going to fly to Cyprus! I can’t wait to see this island, feel its warm and beautiful smell of dry grass! Of course I can’t wait to meet our partners, too! I hope that they will be amazing!
Today we are going to go sightseeing Paphos, but before breakfast we can go swimming! Water in hotel’s swimming pool was a bit cold at first, but later it was PERFECT! We ate delicious breakfast and met our partners. I think that they are very sociable and friendly. They are going to go sightseeing Paphos with us. It will be fine.
Paphos is amazing. My friends and their partners are going to come back to Nicosia, but I’m going to stay in Paphos with my partner and his family… I’m a little bit nervous… I can’t wait to meet them!
I’m sitting in my room in a beautiful hotel near the seaside. I’m full, because I ate a huge meal! I saw a fishing port, a lot of beautiful restaurants, drank delicious and fresh orange juice and knew a bit better my partner and his family. They are great!
Today we have to spend our time with the families. So, we ate delicious big breakfast and we went sightseeing the Aphrodite baths and a place where Aphrodite was born. I ate delicious mussels and I swam in the see. Later, we came back to Nicosia and we went to „THE MALL” – Nicosia’s shopping centre, where we hanged out with our friends. I bought T-shirt and drank delicious milkshake. I had a perfect day!
Today we had the Comenius Activities and the „Polish Day”. In the afternoon, we went sightseeing Nicosia’s Archeological Museum, The House of Cooperation and Ledra street. I bought a lot of souvenirs.
Today we went on sightseeing the Archbishop Makarios the 3rd Cultural Foundation, The Hause of Hadjigeorgikis Kornesios, The Omerye Mosque, Turkish baths and the Famagusta Gate. It was very interesting, but I was a bit tired.
Today we went on the Troodos Mountains. We saw the church of lady Asinou – a UNESCO world heritage site, and we had a picnic with our partners and teachers. The Troodos Mountains are the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen!
Today’s morning and the afternoon we spent with families and partners. I was in a Greek church, I ate a lot of traditional dishes and unfortunately I had to pack my bag In the evening we had a meal in a traditional tawern. We were dancing late into the evening.
Today we are going to come back to Poland! We couldn't stand that we had to say goodbye. Cyprus is the best! Of course I was crying… I loved students from Cyprus! I would like to stay in Cyprus a bit longer… These 10 days passed too fast. We are going to miss Cyprus and our partners!
