IACE 2019 – Day 11
Today, several activities were offered to us. This morning, some of us flew glider with our Pilot Lars (even if the weather was not the best for gliding) while the others started the final presentation we will have to present at the Farewell Dinner tomorrow. Then, we had lunch at Tennischugele all together and some of us continued gliding, others got some rest. Tabea, Delphine, our guides Rafael, Adrian and I decided to visit the capital, Bern. We first visited the BearPark with its bears inside. The BearPark is home to Finn, Björk, and their daughter Ursina. The animals have been living in the park along the bank of Aare since 2009. The BearPark provides a landscape where the brown bears can climb, fish and play, but also just retreat and relax. We even had the opportunity to climb up to one of the churches called Münster, and had an amazing view over the city, and its wealthy history. Our sightseeing tour took us further along the old town of Bern, the Münsterplattform and Zytgloggeturm. Seeing from outside the Federal Assembly of Switzerland was important for us, who have been staying in this country for 11 days from now. Finally, we got back to Grenchen to have dinner. We are all excited about tomorrow.
