Our bus from Zagreb arrived in Zadar at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Our colleagues from Medical School, Mr Edin KADIC and Ms
Anita Raljevic SPRALJA was waiting to pick us up at the bus station. Actually the journey from İskenderun to Zadar had been very easy
Anita had given the easiest way to arrive Zadar, the beautiful city in Croatia. They took us to our hotel by their private cars.
It was very nice to see the friends again. We put our luggages to the hotel and they took us to a nice restaurant in Zadar. Form our
coordinator school in Belgium, Sint-Jozefinstituut, the coordinator of our Project Mr Paul Smit had also come to the meeting with his
wife Ms Ann Smit. We had our lunch and went back to the hotel for some rest. In the evening Edin took us to a nice place in town.

After breakfast, Anita and her students: Tino, Piero,
Josip, Martina, Antonela and Emila had come to the hotel to take us to the school. At Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanica, Edin and headmaster Mr Davor VIDAKOVIC
welcomed us very warmly at his room with a cocktail. Some journalists and TV reporter had also come to make interviews about
the Project with Mr Vidakovic, Edin, our teacher Mustafa, student Uğur and Belgian teacher Paul. It was a nice and friendly environment.
Later, they showed us their school and we saw all the departments
and workshops at school and met the teachers and staff of the school. During school tour students Emila and Martina were the
guides of the tour and they told us about every department and the classroom of the school. It was like a hospital and the quality of the education at school was fascinating.
Edin has also showed us his work place where he worked for some national and international projects using very new IT Technologies.
Our students was very excited and the speed of the spoken English had been little bit fast for them. But they immediately became with the students at Medical school and had good communication.
Before lunch the headmaster Mr Vidakovic took teacher to a park for
coffee and students had some time in the city. They talked, communicated and tried to know each other. And it was nice to see
for us, teachers, that our students were able to communicate in English without any trranslation. The English lessons , which our
teacher Mustafa taught to the students in his time after school had worked.
In the afternoon after lunch, Edin took us to the town and told us about the history of Zadar and showed us the very historical monuments. As
he was a teacher of history of art he knew all the details of every single statue and monuments in the city. We all had been fascinated
by the beauty and the importance of the city in the history.
It was also nice surprise to hear some Turkish words like "Merhaba"
(Hello), "İyi akşamlar" (good evening) and "teşekkürler" (thanks)
from the Coratian people we met at the restaurant. We learned that Turkish TV series were very popular in Croatia and people liked
watching them as we like watching Brezilian and Mexican TV series in the past.

After breakfast Anita and students
took us to the school from the hotel. At school it was a good surprise to see our colleague Ms Linda BAKOTIC. Even if she had a medical operation the
previous day, she had come to school to meet us and to work in Project. Anita and Linda took us and students to a workshop at
school. As we had made a questonnaire about the possible injuries and wounds the can happen while working on different professions, it
was time to learn how to make the first aid for them. In the worshop there was also another lady from the Red Cross. She made some fake
wounds and injuries on students with the Professional make up tool.
It was so professional and realistic that someone, who doesn’t know that they are fake, would think that they are real. Later Anita and
Linda told us how to make he first aid for each of these injuries and wounds. Later students Tino, Piero, Josip, Martina, Antonel and
Emila applied the first aid methods on our students. The students were very skillful and practical in treatment.
By the way our teacher Ömer made turkish coffe for teachers and students and it was delicious.
Later Edin and Anita took us to the Maritime School in Zadar. There, the headmaster of the school Mr Svetko PERKOVIC welcomed us and showed
his school. That was a very nice school and they were using the latest technology in Martime Vocaitonal training. The most
interesting part of this school tour was the simulation systems of a ship they used in education and training. Mr Svetko gave us some presents and told all about his school.
After luch we returned to the Medical School and went on working on Project.
In the evening Edin took us, teachers, to a nice place near Zadar and we talked about Project and what to be done in the next meetings. Students spent some time together.
By the way it had been little bit difficult for families of our students as they had been away from thier children fort he first
time in their lives and we made the students call their families nearly every day. And they also communicated with them via internet.
In the evening we went to a nice country site near Zadar, called Borik. The view was fantastic and watching the sunrise there was
fascinating. Later we went to a Pizza house and had delicious Pizzas. Our colleagues Edin, Anita, Linda and all their students were with us there. We had a nice time there.
