Hello Spring!

Our Spring Semester students arrived safe and have been exploring our beautiful Lisbon for more than a week now!

Orientation

All the students arrived in Lisbon on January 25th and after meeting their hosts and having a good night's rest, we started to get to know the city on the next day.

Students had the opportunity to meet their CIEE Buddies during a nice lunch and then we all went for a walking tour around the city center.

Culture also means food!

Since Portugal is a country with a strong food culture, we decided to show our students the video Anthony Bourdain No Reservations in Lisbon. We had the chance to talk about it after and we all shared some more about our cultural differences. It was a great way for them to learn a bit more about our Portuguese Culture. We absolutely loved it!

 7 billion of others

The last part of our cultural adaptation in Lisbon was a visit to a global exhibition that is being currently hosted in Lisbon.

"7 billion of Others" was created in 2003, and shows the testimonies of more than 6,000 people from 84 countries, obtained through 45 questions, all the same, about 30 universal themes - family, love, death, forgiveness, climate, nature, meaning of life, challenges or childhood dreams - that help us find what separates us, but above all what unites us.
