On Wednesday, after one day of preparations and getting to know all the new people, the Aplec de Sardanes festival came. La Sardana is a traditional catalunian dance. After a delicious breakfast we started with all the preparations. Chairs, tables, food and drinks, parking signs.. Very interesting was to make the typical spanish tomato bread and talk to local people while this. After lunch and rest time, we finished all the preparations. Immediately the usually empty village was full of people coming there to enjoy the Sardana dance and gather together. It was very nice to see so many senior people dancing and sharing their time together, strengthen their beautiful traditions. All the people who organized this event and we as volunteers could observe the positive effect of our effort and work. There was a live band playing music for all the dancing people. After three Sardana dances, bread with sausage, cake and wine was served. Because of a sudden rain, the whole festival was moved indoors, but it was not a big problem and the second three dances took place inside. On the dancefloor, many big and small dance circles were formed. Also a lucky-dip was announced. It was a very nice day full of new experience for us.
