We join two 10-year-old residents of Rome, Danyal and Buki, following them as they do some of their favourite things in the city - make pizza, play football or go to school.
Our six young hosts take us around their home city, show us some of the sights and tell of something of its history.
Daniel's family book a holiday on the Baltic coast and Miriam invites us to her birthday party. We join Jessica at her confirmation and we learn about the Turkish festival of Beiram.
Esther helps us to warm up our bodies but Marko is injured in a volleyball match and needs to go to hospital for a full check up.
Mariam goes horse riding, Jessica has a ballet class, Thomas and Daniel go shopping for CDs, Arno stays in bed as long as he can.
We spend the day visiting two Berlin schools. The day begins and ends early - but there is still homework to be done and after school activities to enjoy.
Thomas shops at the supermarket for his favourite aunt and is rewarded with an ice cream at Cafe Mohring. Meanwhile Jessica and Miriam visit McDonalds and a group of Turkish girls show us how to make Borek.
We follow Jessica's country cousin on his journey in the U-bahn and through the streets of Berlin as he finds his way to her house. Everyone is heading for the big match - the Cup Final.
