We had a wonderful time in Estonia! The first day started after a warm welcome of the headmaster with a tour around the Tallinna Polütehnikum. We saw the interesting structure of the school with different work shops e.g. for printing, photography or electronics. After a delicious lunch at the canteen we started our work on the Comenius project. In the afternoon the group was shown around the old city of Tallinn by Ege Meister. What a marvellous old city! 

On Tuesday we had the opportunity to visit a chemistry lesson. It was very inspiring to watch the students work on their experiments. While the teachers gave their presentations on multiple intelligences and had a vivid exchange of ideas the students had a lesson in Estonian language. From then on, they practiced as much as they could. The German students were happy to learn some Estonian as they had the great opportunity to stay in families. Thank you. After another delightful lunch at the canteen we walked to the Gustav Adolfi Gümnaasium, where we attended another class and were shown around the impressive old building.

The next day we went to Laulasmaa School, a beautiful and bright school building. Afterwards we discovered the museum of Arvor Pärdi, a well known Estonian composer, and learned in the open air museum about the development of housing in Estonia. The guide could talk to us in amazingly many languages as English, German and Turkish. How gifted!

On our last day in Estonia, Ege took us on a trip to southern Estonia where we climbed the highest mountain (317 m) and even the tower on top of it! There we had a great view over the coloured leafs of the autumn forests. In Rouge we saw an energy park, parts of the town and visited a youth centre. Later Ege took us to Voru, her home town, where she showed us the centre and we had a walk along the banks of the lake.

Dear Ege, thank you for giving us such a great time in Estonia, thanks for your perfect organisation and the careful choice of delicious food for us!
