14.-16. augustini toimub Tõrva vallas Marja talus Valgamaa noorte suvekool "Otse 10-sse!", mis tuleneb sellest, et tegu on juba kümnenda noortele suunatud suvekooliga maakonnas.
Idee sündis 2009. aastal ja on andnud noortele võimaluse tutvuda ja veeta üheskoos mõnusat aega. 10 aastat meeldejäävaid mälestusi, eriilmelisi tegevusi ja kauneid Valgamaa turismitalusid. Uurides, miks olid siinsed noored suvekooli tulnud, oli tihti vastuseks meelelahutus, vabadus ja seltskond. "Sõbrad on just see põhjus, miks iga aasta siia tulla," nentis Pukast pärit Kadi Kertu Elias.
Already on Latvian land, waiting for meeting with Estonia!
I get off the plane, already on Latvian land which greeted me with a cool refreshing breeze after two hours of flight!
The first face besides the workers and tourists I met here was the smiling face of a very cheerful and friendly guy named Vallo, who went to drive me to the city I'm gonna live in. We greeted each other, left the airport and passed through Riga, beautiful city that reminded me of certain Ukrainian cities. We headed to Valga, the city in Estonia that would become my home for the next 11 months ... my volunteer life had just begun! !
So after a few hours, I arrived to Oteppa camp, a beautiful place with smiling people. And the reason I went there as I found out later- was because my apartment was not ready for living. People greeted me very kindly there, and in general there was a lot of attention, everything in my mind was (foggy?)...
This month was truly what one could describe as a summer of youth. Sadly, that youth wasn't mine.
This month only saw me work at the youth center in Lüllamäe for only a number of days before it was time to pack my bag, regret not having a smaller bag (always a sign of a devious foreigner), and settle in for the wait for Malev to start. What followed was twoish weeks of non-stop teenagers and more rap music than I would normally hear in six months.
Kallis Eesti, so that was it…
Thank you! Thank you for this experience. Thank you for 11 adventurous months filled with difficult but also indescribably happy moments. Thank you for all the beautiful places you showed me and thank you for all the things you taught me. Thank you for letting me meet great people who made this experience even more special!
But first of all: Thank you for an interesting and fun July!
Wait! What? Already eleven months in Estonia? Kuidas?! How can time go so fast!. So, if my project lenght is eleven months, and this is my eleventh month in Estonia, that means… this is my last entry :(
But i still have to explain what i’ve done during the month of July. Let’s see how is another amazing summer month in Eesti.
