Aja’s farewell party

Aja, after 6-months long EVS project, had her farewell party at last Sunday in March. It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny, perfect for grilling and spending time together in the garden :). The party took place in Europa Haus’ garden, but was prepared by Aja’s flatmates. Natalia, Mari and Yana took care of decorations, food and drinks.
