Today t’was a beautiful day, just like the day we arrived, the sun was up and it was warmer than London would probably be, from my (un)reliable sources I know that it was around highs of 7 to 8 degrees Celsius.
But enough with the weather, what did we (as a team of course) actually do? Well we spent a lovely morning eating cereals and such other foods German people are supposed to eat and this is where our story begins. After filling ourselves to our hearts delight we went along back to where we were staying and had to transport the equipment that we took out there and bring it to the small office that we will be working in for the next nineteen days. After a pain stakingly long time dragging up a massive flip board up to the office and realizing we actually didn't need it, and all the other equipment that we had, like our laptops and cameras, we then set to work on what we had planned the night before.
We had teams of two people; we have Horatio and Anna working on the video, Fazi and Lea working on illustrations and Ayan and myself working on the video blogs for the time being.
We went along and spoke to our host and translator about our absolutely fantastic ideas, and the host fell in love with the awesomeness of the design and interactive work we planned to do for them. After getting the clearance to get on and do them this big favour, we were off designing, illustrating, filming and editing. The only thing that really surprised the host was that we claimed that we could get all this brilliant work done for them within the 3 weeks of staying here.
After snacking on a good lunch once again we pressed forth to meet deadlines but since it was the first day of work we took it a bit easy, especially Lea’s laptop which decided to have some technical difficulty at the wrong time.
Now’s time for tea/dinner whatever you may wish to call it. We are tucking down on it as I struggle to finish this as quickly and professionally as humanly possible. Been a nice day, saw a lovely sunset, climbed mounds of dirt no man has climbed before, and now sit here, with the thought of eating I must say a very merry goodbye and good night.
