Practical issues

  • Some laundry advice from last year's participants, don't know if this is still valid: laundry service 8Kg of clothes to wash and dry in 1 hour for 7 euro (soap is free), click here for directions from Hotel Mira
    • Verified by Noemi--it's still there. Wash is 4 euro for up to kg, plus 1 euro for soap. Dry is 3 euro.
  • Telefone Cards for international calling can be bought at tabacco shops (the shops with the big black & white "T" outside). Usually you get 500min talking for 5€. But this is just a theoretical value, as international calls are more expensive and they cut some minutes for each connection.
