The first day of the exchange went well. The Italians arrived around 7 pm. and the Bascos arrived at 6pm at the metro of Castel Viejo. Before the arrival of the Italians, the Bascos made welcome posters written in different languages. The Italians started their journey at Linate airport at 10.30 am. where they flew to Madrid and then to Bilbao. When everyone was in Gastegune we exchanged names and then had dinner. After dinner, we played a game to remember each others names. At 10 pm. the group got to the hostel and settled in and by midnight everyone was quiet. All in all, a good first day!
