Learning highlights: September 2018


A trip to Den Haag: English, pinquins and catching up with old-time friends. Tech your future festival: planes, drones and fire-fighters. * Building a geodesic dome at the university garden with Sustain (was fun watching Alexander doing that in English). * Excursion Kasteel Hernen and a follow-up: daily life in middle ages, chicken at home and playing quests. Harvesting in the garden, lots of raspberry smoothies, apple pies and still tomatoes and cucumbers.
