In Lausanne we visited the Olympic Museum, where we learned about the Olympics: when they started, how they were, as well as the development and improvement that they have made through the years. We saw the uniforms of the different athletes throughout the ages and I found them really interesting because they were very different from how they are now. I had a great experience.
This day we had a lot of fun... it was a Friday and we were very tired because of the exams, so this helped us to recharge our batteries. The theme was about cartoons so it was very cool. Everyone worked hard in their costume. It was amazing!
Gruyères et Cailler
We went to Cailler, the typical chocolate factory of Switzerland, where we learned some history of the factory and the museum is incredible! We learned how they make the chocolates and we also got some as a gift of the factory. Then we got to the shop and bought a lot of chocolates for our families. In Gruyères, we ate a very delicious fondue which is typical from Switzerland. It was snowing there and the views were amazing. I loved that day.
This party was of the 20's, 50's, 70's, 80's, and 90's. It was a really good experience! We were divided by teams and each team had to prepare a dance. The costumes were really original. I had a lot of fun!
In Geneva, we went to the Red Cross Museum. It is really interesting because you don´t expect it to be how it is. It is a really unique museum and I learned a lot of things that I didn´t know before. There was a very interesting part in which we heard testimonies of people who were in the war and also testimonies of people getting in contact with their families.
Theology of the Body Retreat
It was amazing! Evan Lemoine and his wife Fernanda came from Mexico to give us this retreat. I liked it a lot and I learned a lot of things I didn´t know. We made a chastity promise and we all got a chastity ring. We made different activities and I got to learn the immense value that I have. It is an experience that I will never forget.
SPAyudar and Cinema
We all had the idea of raising funds to help the Syria kids, so we made a spa and a cinema were we sold different things to get money. At the end, we earned about 500 CHF and we are going to donate it to a Spanish Association who helps these kids. I am really proud we could make this happen. It is very nice to see people who wants to help others.
I loved Gstaad because it is a really nice place which it is said that royal people go there for vacations and resting time. It is really classic and fancy. We went ice-skating and then we went to the shops. This town is very beautiful.
We got the opportunity of going to a Mass to celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe at Fribourg. There were all the Hispanic- American people leaving in Switzerland. It was beautiful how we all sang together to Our Lady of Guadalupe. We also went bowling, we had so much fun together.
I had a lot of fun! We all had awkward costumes but the show was very incredible. I liked being part of it and I enjoyed it a lot.
