From that moment on, the program was a little more open, giving different options for a relaxed afternoon.
The majority option of the students was to enjoy a few hours at the beach and sports activities.
For the teachers, there was still a visit to the facilities of the Escuris canning factory, where they treated us to an extensive tasting of their products and we learned that canned fish made with natural products is also a healthy meal.
At night, it was time to share a dinner, enjoy a few hours of company and say goodbye.
All the groups had to travel very early, so there was hardly any occasion for last goodbyes.
But we do ask to find a moment to cover the online evaluation of the meeting.
