On Monday morning we drove by bus to our school in Strážnice. When we arrived at our school, our Czech students brought us to a big room (the assembly hall) where we found our friends. There they first showed us a short review of their visit in Switzerland. After that they showed us the school. And we have to agree that this is a huge school. After that we learned to pronounce some difficult Czech words. It was very funny because it was very hard for us to pronounce these words. Later they showed us what Czech folklore music sounds like. It was very impressive because it was music which students from these school played. Mister Jongepier told us that these students have their own “band” and that they had just won a very special award of Moravia.
At 9.45 a.m we went to the town hall. The vice mayor of Strážnice gave us a very warm welcome in a very beautiful room. After that we got to try some little typical cakes of Czech republic (Kolaci). And we liked them a lot. At about 11.00 a.m we went back to the school and then some other students taught us how to dance the Moravian folklore. It looked so easy but for us it was so difficult. When we finished the dance lesson we went to a sightseeing tour through Strážnice. We had the opportunity to see so many beautiful monuments and even an old jewish synagogue. We decided to go to a beautiful park to make a picnic because we were all hungry. It was a nice picnic. After that short break we went to an open-air museum. It was a pleasure for us because they opened it some months earlier just for us. It was very interesting to see how the people used to live in earlier years. The old houses were absolutely stunning. After we’ve seen everything of the museum we went back to the center of Strážnice where we got invited to a cold drink. It was a very nice and interesting day and we think that all of us were very tired in the evening.
