I really loved this week in Finland when we arrived in the airport we didn't want to meet our partners, but after, we didn't want to leave Finland.



In this week I did many funny things, but also I did things or activities that i didn't like., for example when we were in the bus 1 h aprox. with the guided tour in Helsinki, and the woman explained the history of Helsinki, I think that this was boring for me. I wanted to see Helsinki out of the bus, and maybe I didn't like when we went to the shooping center, because in this time I wanted to visit helsinki, and our partners, who at this moment were in charge us, didn't let us go.



But I had a very nices experiences. I loved when we went to the cotta, next to the lake with all Spanish and Finnish people. I also liked the weekend, and the last night, in the place that It’s liked a cotta, with fire, next to the lake… I really think that Finland has a very nice landscape.





And the answer about what I will never forget, it’s clear! For me the thing that I will never forget are the Finnish people that I met in this trip, and of course my partner Elina ( and her family) she’s a very nice person J

The festival of Caldes de Montbui, is the most important festival of the town.



It is a festival that's celebrated in all towns of Catalunya, normaly lasts three or four days.



In this festival there are different activities for example: fairewalk , the fair, competition of different things, theater, parade of giant, concerts of music ...





the fairewalk :

It is very typical of the festival, It is a ride along the city streets with fire. The devils are those who organize it, they wear a long layer with a hood to cover from fire, they have few sticks that is the place where firecrackersare carried.

People runnext to the devils, and are covered with clothes so that the firedoesen't touch them. They enter and jump under the faire, and so up to the square of the town hall, where the biggest fire is lit, and the Devils make a speech.

All is accompanied by music.
