Today (01/17/2022) a table tennis championship was held in Târgu Secuiesc.
Many people took part in the championship, but many did not pass because of the weather (a cold wind blew on the streets and it snowed).
Among women, the competition was between three volunteers. The first game was between Nane and Petek (Nane won). Then I and Nane played (of course, Nane won). Petek and I fought for second place (I won).
After the end of the championship, there was a ceremony awarding diplomas and medals.
After receiving the medal, we went for a walk around the city. To celebrate the championship we ate a traditional meal called Lángos. I did not take off my medal until the end of the day.
We started the Turkish club on January 5, 2022. This club was especially important to me. Because it was my first presentation where I addressed people in a different language.
Although I am very used to speaking in public, it was really exciting to introduce your culture and country to people in a different language. Another surprise for me was that 2 people knew Turkish at a really good level. Participants were very motivated and willing to learn Turkish.
That's why I wanted to devote some of our time to Turkish lessons. If people are so eager and motivated, why not? I develop a different idea about this club every day and I really try to spend our time nice, quality and fun.
As we already know, "Green Sun " Association is cooperating with dozens of schools and universities. But because of Covid-19, the majority of them became online and "Green Sun" Association had to stop for a while this type of activities.
To our delight, as the number of infected people was going down in the city, we again had opportunity to restart cooperation with schools.
Today I want to speak about one of the benefits that I gain during my volunteering project. Being in a foreign country I decided to start life with new rules, trying to do things that I had used to postponed. So I have started traveling, hitchhiking, getting new acquainted and so on. Today I wanna tell about people whom I met.
... the first thing that struck my eye was kind and responsive people. One of them (a station worker) agreed to look after our stuff until the bus arrived. We had for about six hours and we decided to go on foot to explore the city. Of course, it wouldn't have been us if we hadn't decided to eat something first. One of the most vivid memories from this trip. We ordered as much as if there would be a whole banquet, We drank wine, the mood was rising, we started laughing more and more, telling stories. It was our first dinner together, it was hard to imagine that we didn't know each other until that day. We was laughing as hard as if we had known each other for a long time.
