Presentation of my EVS and my impressions

My EVS started on October 15, 2018, so it’s been four months now. The first two months were very hard because I did not speak Spanish and I had trouble finding my bearings.

Lights out dinner on - the dinner in the dark of December 2018

To reserve a table for a dinner might be considered as an everyday incident, even though that peculiar dinner did not take place in a noble Restaurant, but in the lovely decorated gym of the IRHOV school in Liège.
