08 Magic @ St.Peters / India
Thursday, October 11th
We woke up very early in the morning, because we left for Mumbai at
six o?clock. The trip took five hours. One of Mr Peter?s former
students was kind enough to accompany us and he invited us to his home
for some tea in Mumbai. Then we went to do some shopping. After that
we checked in at the YMCA hotel and left to visit St Xavier?s
Institute of Education, which trains new teachers. We were met by
Father Joe, the principal Dr Adelaide Vax and the staff, who were so
kind as to meet us after their working day. The professors were very
interested in the Finnish education system and the eJournal project.
We were also taken around the institute and shown some of the
classrooms, the library and the staff room. It was very nice to meet
them and to see the institute!
After the visit we saw a couple of sights and did some more shopping.
We wanted to go to bed early, because we had to leave early for the
airport, at four o?clock. In a city the size of Mumbai you have to
take the distances and the traffic into account, getting from one
place to another takes a long time.
The next morning it was time to say goodbye. Mr Peter and his student
took us to the airport. We had an unforgettable trip behind us, we had
been looked after with so much care and met so wonderful people that
we felt we couldn?t express our feelings and gratitude in words. Now
we are looking forward to meeting at least some of them in Finland in
