"A memorable moment was when we organized a children’s field trip to a farm. We were just leaving and children were already in the bus, as we noticed they had lured a goat inside the vehicle. There we were, with a French guy trying to get the goat out from the bus; the French guy was pushing and I was pulling and steering the goat out." - EVS volunteer
