Europe DirectFor those who don't know, Europe Direct is an European project, with it's headquarters in the Central Library of Ramnicu-Valcea, which is helping us understand EU laws, etc. Europe Direct Valcea is a little special, because there are teen volunteers who help. These volunteer get points and by that, they are rewarded every year. I got my points for redesigning the website and for coding the "points manangement system".
The departureWell, this was not the happiest departure: I was very careless about the hour of the departure, so I marked in my calendar 8 a.m... unfortunately it was 7 a.m., so I was called at about 6:50, and rushed to the bus. There, I found that I didn't have my ID card: I left it the night before in the Xerox. So, again, please excuse me.
The gangWe were about 50 persons in the group: the majority were librarians from Valcea, Arges and Dambovita libraries, and 8 volunteers from Europe Direct.
Munich - 1st dayHmm... I think the first day we went to shopping on Marienplatz. I didn't buy anything (I was still upset about the forgotten ID card).
Munich - 2nd day
We visited the Munich Science museum in the morning... and I tell you... it's fabulous: the most important thing to do if you are a geek like me is to take the elevator (which is a little hidden) to the 5th floor I think, where it happens to be the computer science exhibition: there are replicas of Zuse Z3 (first German computer [electro-mechanical computing]), an UNIVAC (first mass produced computer), and IBM 8074, and others. After staying 2 hours, I visited the rest of the sciences: physics, maths and the New Technology "crystal".
After visiting the museum, we went to Europe Direct Munich, which has it's headquarters in the Munich Library. There we took a tour of the library and stayed at a little conference (it was after the bombing in Norway, and there was a politician which was explaining the situation).
Munich - 3rd day
BudapestThe last town we visited was Budapest. Here, we took a trip with a boat to visit the city. Then, at about 10 p.m., we went to the inner city on a very fun colored bridge. Then we were amazed to see an open-air nightclub which had the volume of the music at maximum, at 4 a.m. Sadly it was full. Then, on the way to our hotel, we missed the bus about 4 times, so we caught the rising of the sun.
