Midterm evaluation in Santiago de Compostela


?? Last Friday, on the 30th of September, the midterm evaluation in Santiago de Compostela took place. It was joyful to see other members of the project again. Every group had the opportunity to show what they had achieved during September and talk about their plans for the next month. We also played many interesting games that allowed us to discuss the worries and joys that had appeared this far and try to find solutions to any problems that had arisen. 

During noon we had the wonderful opportunity to visit the city council of Santiago de Compostela where we met several important local politicians and looked around the beautiful historic palace of Raxoi. We had pictures taken with the representatives of the city and all the volunteers received a drawing of the palace of Raxoi by the artist Joaquin Gonzalez Dorao as a gift. 

We ate lunch at the vegan restaurant Clem Cafe and saw how tasty and accessible vegan cooking can be, while at the same time being a more sustainable and eco-friendly choice.

At the end of the day, some of us stayed in Santiago de Compostela while others returned to their corresponding locations of activity or hurried to the bus to reach the destinations of their weekend trips. However, the midterm evaluation in this beautiful city reminded us of its unique charm, and several of us are making plans to return there soon.

?? El pasado viernes 30 de septiembre tuvo lugar la evaluación intermedia en Santiago de Compostela. Fue una alegría volver a ver a otros miembros del proyecto. Cada grupo tuvo la oportunidad de mostrar lo que habían logrado durante el mes septiembre y hablar sobre sus planes para el próximo mes. También jugamos a muchos juegos interesantes que nos permitieron discutir las preocupaciones y alegrías que habían aparecido hasta el momento y tratar de encontrar soluciones a los problemas que habían surgido.

Durante el mediodía tuvimos la maravillosa oportunidad de visitar el Ayuntamiento de Santiago de Compostela donde conocimos a varios políticos locales importantes y recorrimos el hermoso palacio histórico de Raxoi. Nos hicimos fotos con los representantes de la ciudad y todos los voluntarios recibieron como regalo un dibujo del palacio de Raxoi del artista Joaquín González Dorao.

Almorzamos en el restaurante vegano Clem Cafe y vimos lo sabrosa y accesible que puede ser la cocina vegana, al mismo tiempo que es una opción más sostenible y ecológica.

Al final del día, algunos nos quedamos en Santiago de Compostela mientras que otros volvían a sus correspondientes lugares de actividad o se apresuraban al autobús para llegar a los destinos de sus viajes de fin de semana. Sin embargo, la evaluación intermedia en esta hermosa ciudad nos recordó su encanto único y varios de nosotros estamos haciendo planes para regresar pronto.
