Nome: Ali Can
Hello my name is Ali Can (23 years old) and I’m from Turkey. I’ll be volunteer till July and my host ogranisation is A.L.E.M. I’m working in Kindergarten and in LIGA Foundation. I will make cooking and language workshops to the children and to help activities in ‘’Casa des Artes’’ in LIGA.
Since I arrived in Lisbon, I have good impression about the city. I really liked city’s soul and local people also really friendly and helpful. After 1,5 month I feel here at ‘home’ and i really appreciate that I had a chance to became EVS volunteer in Lisboa. Bad thing is time passing so quickly! Hope I’ll speak good Portuguese soon! :P
I’m just enjoying this beautiful city with exploring everyday something new. Lisboa has lots of secret spots and I try to find out them which is really fun. I’m used to live here and I feel some kind of ‘local’ even if I don’t know everyhting about city. (hehe, hope soon!) Morning bica with pastel da nata is my favourite thing ever here in Portugal! (OK, not everyday :p) And Portuguese wine of course. I adore it! Maybe it will be most thing to miss when I return home :)
