Many different countries were represented, like Germany, Brazil, India, Estonia, Japan, and Poland. Students were able to see traditional clothing, maps, pictures, and taste foods from the different countries.
Martyna and Joanna shared Polish pączki with strawberry or blueberry jam, which everybody loved. They showed pictures of the Fiat 126p and Polonez – Polish old cars, postcards with views of the most beautiful cities in Poland, and flags.
