Sandgärdskolan
is back in Cyprus again. This time for a new Erasmus+ project. In this project,
The art of Maths (TheAma), we will try to help Maths teachers to develop their
teaching by creating tools for pupils where various forms of art are used as
starting points. Sandgärdskolan will specifically lead on the Intellectual Outputs
where drama, cinematography and literature are used. Finally some things in the
Erasmus+ projects that touch upon my subjects.

It felt a
bit lonely to travel on my own, but that was compensated by the visits at the
familiar spots Zanettos restaurant, where the abundance of food was just as ridiculous
as the last time, and Piwo microbrewery where the handcrafted beer was just as
exquisite as in May. I stayed at the same hotel too. The most striking
difference was the amount of Eintracht Frankfurt supporters everywhere. They
were playing Limassol in Europa League and had an impressive following. There must
have been several thousands (5 000, according to this article) of black, white and grey dressed Germans in Nicosia.

The project
was off to a good start with inspiring partners that promise this project to be
a successful one. It will be great to meet with (and form) the local team next
week. As soon as the topics and themes have been decided we will start working
on a regular basis.

The meeting
room was really interesting too. It was actually situated in the buffer zone in
between the Cypriot and the Turkish side of Nicosia. A bit eerie feeling to
pass by barbed wire on your way to the meetings, but the youth center that had
been created (which hosted us with the meeting rooms) offered a hope for a better
future.

Next
meeting will be in Mons, Belgium in May. Already looking forward to it.
