On Monday we had breakfast at school all together. All the people from Malaga, Barcelona, Drownfield, Sindelfingen and Kourou. We met at 8:30. There we offered our presents to thank the french guiana teacher for organizing this wonderful week. We listened to the speech of the headteacher of the school from Kourou. After Breakfast we came together at the amphitheater for present the first part of our international presentations. We made some international groups with members of different countries. All groupes get a logbook, what was a really good idea but it didn't work the way it should be, because most of the time just one student had the book and no one feels responsibil for it, so the most groupes didn't work a lot with it. We had presentations from Kourou about geometric study of climate, monitoring of airborne dust, cyclone model and how to make home-made kite. Than from Malaga Hurricanes and Tornados and Thunderstorm and volcanic eruptions and kites from Drownfield. The presentations were very interesting but also sometimes we didn't unterstand anything because ist was to silent and often they were a little too long and it was really hard because we had no break. After the presentations we tried to make our own kites, what was very interesting and we really enjoyed it. After we had lunch at school and had some time to make new friends. After lunch we went to our host family to calm down and to pack our things for the afternoon at the beach.
At the afternoon we went to tour Dreyfus - pointe des roches for birdwatching, lite measurement and kite competition. We see a lot of different birds, for example there were skimmers, red knots, ruddy turnstones and shore birds. We had some binoculares to see them better. We talk a lot with all people and tried to find a way to comunicate. We walked along the beach and some people tried out their kites. It was a pitty that the biggest kites didn't work.
We had diner at our host family and stayed the evening there. Some host parents showed us Kourou. The first day was very hard because of the many differences between our cultures, the climate and also the time. The food was very different to and the way how they live. There was so much new we learned on monday. The most of us were very happy with their familys and all of us loved it to be there.
