Echange Pologne mars 2019

Wednesday, 20.03 (Sacha and Vincent)

The main aim of the day was for the French group to reach Poland. We had to take the train at 5.30 AM to Valence Train Station, then board another train to reach Paris Roissy-Charles-De-Gaulle airport. But things didn’t go as planned.

First, the train arrived in Montpellier station twenty minutes later than scheduled. We had to wait and we were a bit anxious because the time margin to get the plane was decreasing. At last, when we got on the train, its driver announced a two-hour delay in Valence because of a derailment.

We couldn’t take the correspondence in Valence anymore and we had two choices ;eitherto turnback to Montpellier and give up the idea of going to Poland or try to reach the airport by stayingin the same train until Paris station and take the suburb train to Roissy Charles-De-Gaulle.

This option was really tight but the teachers decided to try it with the agreement of Mr. Régnery. When we arrived at the train station in Paris, everyone rushed and we managed to be very smart and fast. We even arrived in the boarding room 30 minutes before the flight.

Finally, the flight went well and everyone was happy. We landed and MsGrajner welcomed us. We took the bus, discovering the Polish surroundings, and eventually arrived in front of the school. There, we joined partners and went to our families’ places.

We had a very nice time in school that day. In the morning we had a meeting at school with the headmaster and we played games to get to know each other better.

After these games, we took part in an English theatrical show called ‘Peter Black’.

Afterwards, we went for a lunch. We went to a few different restaurants in Wodzislaw Slaski to eat typical Polish food such as pierogi, kluski, roladaimodrokapusta.

Then, we had a walk around the old town.

Friday, 22.03 ( Iris,Lina,Agata and Viktoria)

At 8 o’clock all ofthe French pupils went to their partner‘s lessons. So we took part in the French lesson where we spoke about the differences beetwen France and Poland for example we compared the school systems and the food.
We also spoke about that what suprised us when we were discovering this country.This was very interesting and we heard Polish people speaking in French.

Then we went to the religion lesson where the pupils did a test and we watched a video about Jerusalem. After that we reunited witht eachers and we summed up the morning. Next we played games and ate typical polishcakes named „kołocze“. At half past 10 we attended two conferences, one about the English language and its different faces, the otherone about metaphores and metonymies in everydaylife.

At half past 12 was time for lunch ! We went to the Economic School and we made Polishdumplings with meat and potatoes called Pierogi.

Monday, 25.03 (Anaëlle and Hélène)

In the morning, we visited a salt mine which is located in the town of Wieliczka.

It’s part of the UNESCO, people come to Poland just to see it. It’s a cultural and natural site. There are about 1,2 million of people that come to see it every year.

Since the 13th century this mine worked continually until 2007, so 700 years of activity. The mine is very well preserved, the wood machines as well. We can find 300 km of corridors there. The deepest goes 327m underground. Some of the rooms have been converted into chapels with salt statues. We can also find an underground lake there.

This mine has a legend of St. Kinga. In the 13th century a young Polish prince, called Bolesław, of the Piast Dynasty, decided to get married and chose a beautifulHugarianPrincesse named Kinga for wife. She didn’t want any gold and jewel for a wedding present, but she wanted something that could serve the people. So when she went to the mine, she threw her engagement ring and waited until a miner would find it. Someone found it, got married and found salt on the same spot. They immediately built there a salt mine, which is called now Wieliczka.

During the afternoon, we visited Krakov.

Once there, they had to change their T-shirts into the bakery work shirts. After that, the bakers showed them all the bakery and explained them what each machine is used for.
When the presentation was done, they showed the group how to work with the dough to make 3 different bakeries : pizza, bread and doughnut. When all of the dough was used, they put the pastry into the oven. After it was backed, they tasted all things they made. It was really tasty.

The second group walked like 30 minutes to arrive into another bakery of MrKozielski.
We were waiting to enter the backer’s, so we were drinking coffee... so after that, we began to bake some little cakes with pastry cream inside. And after that we waited a few minutes for them to be backed and we were able to eat them, that was pretty good !
Then we all went into the Old Town in Wodzislaw in a restaurant where weate our lunch. As always, it was tasty.

After everything, we came back at school to chill and write about these experiences. Today evening we have a farewell party in a Willa Restaurant in Rydułtowy. The party will join all the flock of the exchange and the teachers. This will be our last night in Poland...
