Actually, we didn't say goodbye to my Estonian family. More importantly, we opened champagne to celebrate something, that was our friendship. Cheers then, until next time, to our health..
Ülle's Birthday: Sirje's one of close friends, the dear Ülle. I normally have trouble remember birthday dates. But we visited her on 4th September to celebrate Ülle's birthday. Previously, together with Mattias, we prepared "sarma", the local dish of the Aegean region in Turkey. Its basic ingredients are bulgur, tomato paste, spices, grape leaves, and lemon.
It will most likely be a very unusual blog from me. News and something special.
September came, so it means only one thing - a new school year. Honestly, I don’t know what I should write about, cause this month I had only a lot of work and a rare meeting with Matviy. With Gaia students we continued to learn english, the month’s theme was “Home”, so we played Kahoot and other games. Kids learnt how to create fun sentences and even built their own houses.
...before leaving Estonia – that’s what August was all about. Haven’t done your projects yet or seen any national parks? Well, one month is surprisingly less time to do finish up your todo-list. But guess what, in the last meters I definitely sprinted to reach most of my goals…
Feet in hands and work - the motto of my August.
But let's not forget that volunteers are also people, so as it often happens, I sometimes turned on the burrito mode🌯 when I just wanted to wrap myself in a blanket and ... actually that’s all.
Let's get started. The month began with the fact that I set myself the goal to solve all problems, finish all the tasks and spend my week off in Portugal with a calm soul, which later turned into a retreat from the phone in mornings(and work in the evenings, because only then i had an Internet). I can't say that it was planned, but I'm happy.
After a long camping marathon, it was time to rest. Enjoyed the holiday with my family. Mother Sirje works in a kindergarten in the city of Valga. I accompanied her for 2 working days. All day, I was a partner in the activity times of the children in several classes accompanied by the teachers 💫 💫
The first thing that caught my attention was the difference between Estonian and Russian children. Estonian children were more calm and shy, while Russian children were sociable and used their body language actively. So, it was interesting that the difference between the two societies differed so sharply from childhood 💭💭
