Alicante, 25th August 2018. “The only thing I regret is not having stayed there even longer” is the conclusion at the end of Nico-las’ report on his work placement. After a somewhat exciting odyssey after the arrival at the airport in Alicante Nicolas soon managed better and better to communicate with his host family and at his work placement, a café in Alicante. He liked working in the café very much, as he got to know people from a lot of countries and could form some friendships. At the end of his work placement he even discussed the Spanish language policy, the separatist movement and the situation in Columbia with his host family.
