The group 60PLUS of the NAC Denia made a trip to the University of Alicante on Tuesday, May 17 2016. The program contained a tour through the university and the different faculties as well as a visit to the large library and the museum which belongs to the university.
Everybody also took part in a lecture in the faculty of languages where after a short presentation of the professor different German dialects were presented and compared with one another. All participants could demonstrate their
dialect which was very entertaining not only for the students. One couple said at the end “The interview and the direct contact with young people we liked a lot, one could do that more often. These young people are all so nice and friendly, actually one should invite them sometime… – only with events like these can one promote the understanding amongst the different generations.”
After the lunch break when everybody was having lunch like a real student in the Mensa the scientific solar plant of the university was visited. Formerly this solar plant was on the island of Tabarca but in the meantime it is
placed on the ground of the university for scientific and educational purposes.
At the end of the day the almost 30 participants were enthusiastic about all the interesting impressions. Only one member said “now we have walked and walked and walked and are very tired” whereupon another answered jokingly “don’t say that too loud otherwise you won’t be able to come on a trip with the 60PLUS Group again!”.
