Hello from Belgium :)))

It's time for an update :))

Last time I forgot to mention that I also volunteer for another organization here in Belgium called VFG (Vereniging van personen met een handicap or organization for people with a handicap). I went with a group from VFG on a sea trip around Belgium and Netherlands. It was quite a ride for me because I got pretty seasick.

Nevertheless, I survived :)). We also had some live music (one of the workers from VFG played on an instrument). It is a great experience and I will definitely do it again.

OK, back to my EVS work. From the 31st of October until 4th of November YFU offered free culture games to different organizations. Me, a Belgian student (Kira) and a co-worker went to these organizations. I went with, to mainly see how students, who usually carry out these games, do it. It was quite interesting and I learned a lot from Kira. After a couple of games, it was time for me to try it! I was nervous at first (especially since it was in Dutch), but with some help of my co-worker it went pretty great :)). Next games are for winter holidays, but I won't be in Belgium because I'm going home for a visit.

This was on a trip to Antwerp :)))

After my visit at home, I have Dutch exams! I like Dutch so far and I'm trying to talk as much Dutch as I can.

Around the end of January we have a mid-training for EVS. It will be nice to see ALL the EVS volunteers again.

Oh, last week I also met a famous Belgian chef! His name is Roger van Damme. He signed his book for me :))

Until next time :))
