Carnaval month at INESAD started with Dia de Compadres (31 January 2013). Thankful for the great Women’s Day organized by the guys at INESAD last year, the girls decided they had to do something special for the guys, so they organized a surprise party with teambuilding games and more.
The first game was a communications game where one part was blind-folded and the other had to lead the pair through a set of obstacles and challenges.
