TUESDAY 20th OF MARCHWe went to their high school. The lessons were very interesting: for example in Chemistry we made some experiments! It was very funny. The school was a girl's school, and it was composed by four or five houses with different rooms. Each classroom was for a subject. There are under 20 students in each class, so the teachers socialize a lot with the students. We had lunch there.
