My name is Casparina Theresia Renwarin. I’m majoring in Banking and Finance 2012. I arrived at Led on 18th July 2014, and began my summer internship at St. Petersburg, Russia. I explored some places by tram and some others on foot. I managed to visit the entire place and visit so many museums. I was there for almost 2 months. I had enjoyed my holiday even though I had to work at Haglar Camp.
The first week was the most tiring week since I had to adapt with the local culture. Even though I experienced a culture shock but I just tried to enjoy the place and the environment. I was motivated to adapt with people who lived there. Before I went to Haglar Camp, I went to so many places in St. Petersburg including Petergof, Pushkin (Catharina Palace), Orthodox Cathedral, and others. It was very amazing experience because I met so many friends from Colombia, Brazil, Kuwait, Egypt, Mexico, Serbia, Tunisia, China, Hongkong, and Taiwan
The second week, I had to go to the Haglar Camp because I had to work as a teacher there for about 3 weeks. It was surprising for me because I met my best friend, Polina. She was a Russian girl with talent, smart, and beauty. We were together also as team leaders. I got 2 classes for children and teenagers. When I was at the camp, I ate 5 times a day and the foods were very delicious. It was a wonderful experience with my students every day at the camp. After I finished my project as a teacher at the camp, I went to Moscow just for summer holiday. In Moscow, I ate Russian cuisines and it was delicious. I had fun with my friends because when we were in Moscow we visited all the tourism spots such as Kremlin, Red Square, Gorky Park, and others.
On the last days, I was feeling reluctant going back to Indonesia, it was totally the opposite of what happened on the first week. In short, I got so many experiences including the culture shock, met so many friends from other countries, tried Russian cuisines, visited lots of Museums, and visited a lot of famous places in Russia.
