About a month ago I found myself in a totally never thinkable trip: flying to Norway in the middle of winter, for a ten days international student festival in Trondheim (ISFIT) . ISFIT gathers 400 selected students aroudn the world in this 10 days festival, every 2 years, where a topic of interest is discuss, this year was: Corruption.

Finally I arrive to Trondheim, I always was more of the cold weather rather than the warm weather but damn it, it was really cold here! As soon as we arrive volunteers from ISFIT assigned us a family an a roomate where we will be staying during this 10 days. And also show as the Studenter Samfundent that is like the "Student House" of Trondheim where all the workshops and plenaries took place.
One of the speakers we got the chance to hear was Dalai Lama! we were able to ask him question and get to know him in real person!
As we were a lot of students from a lot of different backgrounds an interest, we were dividen in differetns workshop that approached corruption from different perspectives. I was in the photography workshop and we had as goal to make a little video that express what corruption is.

-How polite and gentle is everyone, always willing to help!
-How freaking expensive is everything!! seriously, it was expensive to breath almost...
The last thing that call my attention was how much power had the students in this city, is was a real "student city" many people from Oslo move here to attend University (which is unthinkable here in Argentina) The Studentsamfundent was something super interesting, a 6 floors building right in the middle of the city, lead by all non paid volunteers students, that want to make this city affordable and better for student, since they are not paid they had the cheapest restaurant in Norway! As well as the biggest student festival :)
