Pharmacists are already on the spot. Although none of us had ever flown by plane before, we did it great!! We started the first day by making familiar with the place of work experience. After guiding us through the pharmacies by the managers and getting familiar with the principles of health and safety at work, we set out to visit the charming Braga. It has been amazing so far...

Second day of work experience in Portugal. We are at family pharmacies Farmacia Martins and Farmacia Alvim in Braga. Magda, Ada and Wiola N. work in a pharmacy on the outskirts of Braga, while Beata and Wiola K. went to the pharmacy in the very center of the city. Today was full of excitement, we got to know exactly the pharmacies and the scope of our duties. We were very warmly welcome by the staff. We got acquainted with the assortment of Portuguese pharmacies that is somewhat different from Polish. Above all, it surprised us that in the pharmacy you can buy medical equipment, a wide range of products for mothers and children and also use the services of an optician. After a busy day, we went for a walk through the charming streets of sunny Braga. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and therefore decided to spend time together having some delicious coffee, sharing our views and opinions.

The third day of work experience in Portugal. Today, a beautiful sun greeted us in Braga. Full of optimism, we set out for our pharmacies. The day was very busy. We mainly dealt with deliveries, inputting data of goods into the computer system, as well as the segregation of medicines. We also helped our patients to measure blood pressure. After work, we went for a walk around the city to send postcards. We are waiting impatiently for the next day.

The fourth day of work experience we started from receiving the goods and inputting data to the computer system. We also accompanied doctors when measuring the level of glucose in blood and under the supervision of a pharmacist we made a drug prescription using a ready-made medicine. Over time, we can see more and more differences between pharmacies in Portugal and Poland. After a successful day at work, we went for a stroll through the streets of Braga to try Portuguese delicacies.

On Saturday, we set off to the Portuguese capital - Lisbon together with other groups from Hungary, Turkey and Bulgaria. We arrived at the place at noon. We visited many interesting and important places: the Hieronymites Monastery, the Monument to the Discoveries and the Belem Tower. We were amazed by the colourful streets of Lisbon and the famous yellow trams. We had the opportunity to try traditional local dishes. In the afternoon we set off on a further journey, this time to a special place - Fatima. It was an amazing experience for us. We returned to the hotel late in the evening.

Bom dia!
We started the next day of work experience in Portugal. When we arrived at our pharmacies, delivery was already waiting for us. After the reception, we had a few moments to learn from the pharmacy staff some new Portuguese phrases. Then we made an expectorant mix for the patient. After the practice we had time for ourselves. We went for a coffee and enjoyed it with traditional Portuguese music - fado.
Ciao!

Our adventure is slowly coming to an end. Every day we are more and more efficient in dealing with work and getting more and more difficult tasks. We have become attached to our pharmacies and associates, which is why the thought of the end of the work experience makes us feel sad. Today was a day full of work, we found it hard to find a break. Checking deliveries, segregating medicines, and handling patients took us most of the day. We also had the opportunity to prepare a prescription medicine. The weather pampers us. In our free time, enjoy the sunny baths and enjoy the delicious Portuguese desserts! Let the moment last forever!

Hello!
On the last but one day of the work experience, we had plenty of activities. We had the opportunity to help in the inventory of medicines and in the preparation of ointments for patients. As usual, the employees of the pharmacy were very friendly and eager to help. Both during lunch and after work, we could enjoy the great weather by sunbathing at the fountain in the center of Braga. After dinner with our mentor, we decided to see the city at night.
