Franziska and I celebrated Vappu together. We went to see the student from the University of Technology “swim” in the rapid.
After that, we walked in the city despite the bad weather. We went to see the open-air market. We talked about the traditions that we have in our country when it comes to students.
I talked mostly about “les 24h vélo de Louvain-la-Neuve”. It takes place in Louvain-la-Neuve which mostly is a student’s city. Every year this “race” takes place. It lasts for 24h hours and the contestants are supposed to take over from one another.
There is a lot of people in the city that just want to enjoy a night out. The city organizes a lot of different concerts, dj’s are coming. It is a big thing in Louvain-la-Neuve. Lots of people from all over the country come there to party with their friends and even former students come there.
During that meeting, I mostly talked about Belgium and explain to Franziska in French certain words related to student life.
