Exhibition

Some weeks ago I went to an exhibition in an abandoned hotel, where they were showcasing objects that migrants and refugees brought from their countries. There many obejcts, all from various periods.

Ups and downs

The last weeks have not been that great to be honest, lots of ups and downs. Hopefully when the new volunteers will come, things should get more interesting.
