Day 5 - MILSET ESI 2011

Fri, 2011-07-22 18:56 -- Team Canada-MILSET

In the morning and afternoon, we went on one of eight fun trips which we had selected prior to arriving in Bratislava. The largest number of people went to Castle Devin and the Waterworks Museum. Castle Devin was well worth the visit. Others went to Kia Motors, Slovnaft, Bratislava Castle, Batov Channel, Power Plant Jaslovske Bohunice, Lipot thermal baths, Castke Lednice and Cave Driny. It rained hard at times, so raincoats were the order of the day.

In the evening we returned to the Incheba Expo Arena for the Closing Ceremony and Dinner.

The evening started with some fine Slovak music by a live band and singer. This was followed by the awards ceremony. Canada was recognized several times.

Dinner was followed by a dance, and the Canadian students were the last ones standing. The music stopped at 10:00 pm and we took the last bus back to the residence.
