A school trip to Salonika
About one month ago, on 6th November, we went on an educational school trip to Salonika. We were approximately sixty children.
The bus trip lasted two hours. During the bus trip, most of the children were singing. We arrived at our destination at 10:00 am.
First we went to the Byzantine museum, where we studied the ancient life of “Constantinople”, a Byzantine town in Turkey. We did a project while we were here, so we learned many things.
Secondly we walked down the white tower. While we were walking, we could hear the sound of the waves next to us. As we were waiting for our turn to get into the tower, some Africans who where selling bracelets, were trying to draw our attention by saying “You are very beautiful! You are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen!” In this way they sold some bracelets. Ok, I took one too…!
At last we got into the tower. There were so many steps, that we got really tired, till we arrived at the top. On every floor we had the opportunity to see photos, which depicted the city life through centuries. The view from the top was exciting! You could see the entire town from there. I couldn’t stop taking photographs. I took photos with my math teacher, too!
After our tour to the tower, we went to “Rotonta” where we saw a big church, which was under renovation. Its architecture is impressive.
And, finally, it was lunch time! We split up and went to a restaurant where we ate a big sandwich, which contained sauce, cheese, bacon and tomatoes. Yummy!
Then it was time to return to Kozani. We got on the buses and in two hours we were back to Kozani. Although we were exhausted, we were happy as it was a fantastic experience!
