Zdravo, Salut! by Cécile

Zdravo, Salut!

My name is Cécile, and I am an evs volunteer in Pekarna Magdalenske mreže with Marek. I am from France (Nantes). I came the first of february, and I am here until the begining of december. I choose Maribor to do my EVS because of Pekarna Magdalenske Mreže, they have the most interesting projects in my opinion. And also because I didn't know anything about Slovenia, and slavic culture as well.
I am here to totally make a break with my daily, I was a freelance illustrator, which I had a lot of difficulties to earn my living with. And I wanted to do some experience abroad, it was missing in my life. I am here to meet new people and new culture, to give a hand, build some projects, learn from teamworks.
Here is a drawing of my first sight of Maribor. Of course it is only one aspect of it, because If I've put all what I saw, it could be very weird. I noticed that Maribor has a lot of bakeries (Pekarna), and even my NGO wear this noun. I didn't travel a lot, but I thought that the bread was mostly a french stuff. In Maribor we can eat everywhere, and take a tea or a coffee in cosy and nice places.You will also notice that it is a quite naive vision, of course you can choose to not take it literally. I mean, I know that people from Maribor are clever so far, and this world isn't perfect, right? :)

To be continued.
