On Monday we went to the school facilities of Kristine, a very big school. Then, we went by bus to the Liberty Square and we visited many historic sites of the city. We took many pictures. After that, we visited the TV tower broadcast. We climbed 170 meters. At the end of the visit, we had lunch at a restaurant. In the afternoon we went ice-skating and in the evening we went home.
On Tuesday morning we visited a museum that had an exhibit about the Titanic. At the end of the visit, we had a battle of snowballs: teachers vs. students. Students won, of course. After lunch, we visited the Bastion cellars and Kock tower. At the end of the visit, we all played bowling and billiards. At the end of the day, we went home.
The next day, we had a robots competition with mixed teams (teams with students from different countries). After, we had lunch at the school canteen. The food was quite good and tasty. In the afternoon we visited the Tallinn Institute of Technology and then we went skiing. It was pretty fun because we fell many times. Then, we went to the cinema.
On Thursday we continued our competition and after that we attended a lecture given by two robotic members of the NPO Robotics. They showed us a lot of interesting robots. Then, we had lunch in the school canteen. In the afternoon we continued the competition.
On Friday morning we knew the name of the country which won the logo of the project – “Many cultures, one technology”. In the afternoon we played computer games. At the end of the day, we went out to dinner with Kristo’s parents. They were really cool people.
Saturday was our last day in Estonia, so we had to wake up early to pack. Around eleven o’clock in the morning we visited a waterfall and a totally icy river with Kristo’s parents. Finally, we went to Tallinn airport. Once there, we were desperately looking for Vítor’s citizen card that seemed to be cursed. But we found it. The rest of the trip went well and we got home okay.
