Summer


Tere!

After almost one month I have come back to Tartu and my routine has changed because the school year has ended. The Summer is here and we have different plans for these months. 
The last week I started with this new plan. There was a little camp at Tähe Noorteklubi where the kids did different activities during all day until 16.00 pm. I was there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 
Thursday at the morning we did one game. This game consisted in search questions that they were hidden by the youth center. After they had to answer them, and the next day there were present for the winners. In the afternoon, after the lunch, we went to the cinema for watch Maleficent, and it was really good. 



The next day, Friday, in the morning we went to police station, one policewoman show us the place and how they work. I think so that it was very interesting for the kids to have any knowledge about this job. 
After we come back to Tähe Noorteklubi for the lunch and they had free time until the next excursion to the radio station. This second visit was also very refreshing for them, one locutor was explaining us how he works and the kids could talk on the microphone. 

Saturday was just the morning, it was the last day and one photographer, Siim Tiirik, cames to the center for show us his work also, and his photos. After that was presented diplomas and the camp was over.

This week was special because on Monday was Võidupüha and Tuesday was Jaanipäev. The night between these two days, they celebrate the most longest day of the year with fires, music and barbecues, it was very nice.



Way Tartu-Tallin

Bye-bye!

Tere!

This was my last week before leaving to Madrid during almost two weeks. The last week I did different activities outside. I have been at the Melliste´s beach with the kids and the youngsters. We did a barbecue, playing volleyball and swimming. It was a nice afternoon, enyoing the good weather.

The last thursday I was introducing the spanish culture in Roiu and I did one traditional dish to show them the spanish gastronomy. It was interesting because some youngsters have been in Sevilla the last year and they show me photos also about their trip.

At the weekend I was in Narva for visiting the mines and the highest waterfall in Estonia. I liked so much this little trip, because beside I could see the sea.

Tomorrow I'm going to Madrid, I hope you have a good week.

Tere!

This week in Tartu is the students week, on the last Monday to begin this special week was an important concert. Every year is celebrated this concert, its name is Öölaulupidu, Night Song Festival. It was incredible, there were many people and the music was very beautiful. Then a Festival Night photo. This is only one side, in the other side there were the same people.

In the art class last week the kids and me were working with clay, we did a thing to put the pencil and other free thing. It was funny to use this material for this craft. In Melliste, we did butterflies and dinosaurs with recyclable material.

Happy Easter week!


Tere, 

The last week was Easter, and for that the crafts are related to this topic. In Laeva we painted eggs, and in Täheklubi we did greetings cards for children parents. This Easter have been very different to me comparing with my live and habits in Spain and it was first time for me to paint eggs, it was very funny and amused. 

The last weekend arrived the good weather, and was an opportunity get familiar with Tartu beach. Tartu doesnt have coast, but has a big river where is this so-called beach. I like  this beach so much and  so I think that in the future I will spend much time there. With these temperatures Tartu looks like a different city, there are a lot of life at the streets, terraces, and you can feel how the people are more happy these days. I hope to say good-bye to the winter.

Spring is coming

Tere! 

Nowdays the weather in Tartu is better and we have to do more activities outside and the people have a good mood. For expample, the last week in Melliste the weather was very good and the kids wanted to be outside, so we went to find sticks, leaves and cones to the forest to decorate the youth center. With this weather Tartu looks more cheerful and more beatiful, and begins the season of barbecues and other plans next to the river.

These weeks I did diferents activities in youthcenters, for example butterflys and birds in Täheklubi, daisies in Melliste, or "murupea" in Laeva.

In the coming weeks I have plan to go to Tallinn because after two months I think so that it is necessary to see it. My experience in this country continues to be fantastic and very practical to my future because I know that everything I experience in here I will be worth in the future.

I hope to continue growing in this time here in Estonia and continue learning every day. 

Bye-bye !

First month



Tere!

After one month here in Tartu, I feel like the routine is coming. I continued working in my different youths centers with the art class, and also with the cooking class. But this routine is good for me because I feel almost like at home. Actually, I can feel more integrated in my work place and also in my social life, and more comfortable while I am doing my work. This last is for the language, because after one month with the estonian lesson, I can communicate a little with the kids, and with my coworkers too. My social life here is very varied, I met people from everywhere and that I like so much.


During this time I continue discovering new things and new places each week.


Here are some pictures of these days with a little explanation.
