Wow our last full day here!
This morning Marko and Marko picked us up at 10.45am and we drove to Sečovlje Salina Nature Park to see how the famous Slovenian salt is harvested.
We learned about the special algae that keeps the salt away from the dirty mud. And we learned that summer is when sea water can be turned into salt because the sun evaporates the water.
We tasted salty chocolate. We liked it!

We were really lucky because the artist Gani Llalloshi from the painting day of the ArtDOWNUP project had his studio nearby. He invited us in for a visit.
We had such a great time with you Gani!
We returned to school to eat a big lunch. While it was cooking we worked on our journals. Would you like to have a look???
At 5.30pm we went to the Portoroz Auditorium to see kids from the local schools do performances honoring all of the women of Portoroz. This is because soon it will be International Women’s Day on the 8th of March. Jaka, Igor, and Zarja, our friends from CKSG presented a poem. Igor and Zarja read the poem while Jaka played piano. Well done, great show guys! After the show we met Igor’s mum Laura. She is excited for when Igor comes to London.
After the show we just happened to be passing Cacao, the amazing ice cream shop. Come on! We had to go for another scoop or two, or cake!
We walked home in the wild wind. These weird photos are from our dark windy walk back to the school.
Good night! We feel tired, but we feel so full of good times and new experiences. We have made so many new friends! We can’t wait to see everyone at home to tell you all about it. See you tomorrow London xoxoxox and see you on Monday Riverside!
