I worked from 8 till 2pm. After that I enjoyed the many possible activities on the campus of the AUB like the gym, tennis courts, gym etc. I stayed in the dorms on the campus. That made it quite easy to socialise and get in contact with other students. On the weekends the other IAESTE students and myself went to different cities and sights in Lebanon by renting a van and a driver. Next to that enjoying the great lebanese food and the party city Beirut was on our daily schedule.


It mostly changed my views of the world because working in a different culture is more interesting than the work itself. It highly inspired me to work on an international basis in the future.
