I start writing about my experience in this little village, next to Võru, Rõuge. This village have surrounded by seven lakes, one of them the most deepest in Estonia, 38m. There are located also church that is the most important in this region. It is a beautiful place.
I was there during six days, since Tuesday until Sunday. I worked in one youth center. I will explain my days by order. The first day, Tuesday was to introduce me to my coworkers during this short time, my work place, my host and the village. I will write about my host, Qati, other volunteer from Georgia, she was a good host, she prepared to me georgian food, showing me Rõuge and spending good moments together. Sharing this time with her was really good for me, I learned many things about her country, her culture and her history.
The second day in Rõuge was starting to planning the family´s embassadors day, that day was on Thursday. We were suppose to prepare activities for the families while the embassadors had a other activities. We made different crafts for the sons, and also activities for the wifes and husbands. The next day, they came, and there was one exhibition about Rõuge, and others activities, it was a interesting day, between people from many differents countries.
On Friday, we were preparing the next day, Saturday, because in Rõuge all years there are one boat race and around of this activity, there are other more activities, like concerts, food, beach, volley championship... My work this day was face painting. I was with Qati all the morning painting kids faces, with the good weather was very funny. After one long night I came back to Qati´s place and the next day I came back to Tartu.
The last week, after Monday to rest, I started to collaborate with Riin, in this youth exchance. During two days, one man from London, one girl from Romania, two youngstes from Estonia, Riin and me were thinking and discussing about accomodation, transportation, risk assesments, agreements, etc. These day were really intensives but at the end I think so that the result is so good. We worked very well. Everyone contributed with their ideas and with point of views, it was really interesting. Now I hope so that the yout exchange is successful.
At the end of this week I have my last training here in Estonia, in small village named Suru, for talk and share my experience here during these months with others volunteers. I think so that it will be great. I will write about it the next week and about my little trip for Viljandi and the youth work camp in Tähe Noortekeskus.
