Letter to my kids
We visited three countries, in every one we were listening to Eco lectures and debating. We lived in five cities and in the third one we were hunting for the treasure. We went down to the underworld (Guido and Salina Turda mines) and had a slight touch of the blind people world (Invisible Exhibition). We experiened Auschwitz and survived a night in the mountains, and we have been guided by a homeless person. We were doing Trash Art and constructing ECO robots. During our journey we were observing the reaction of the people around while we were partying in the train, dancing and singing with local youngsters. We tried to learn juggling and dancing national dances. We were hitch-hiking to go to the neighbour lake…
Our legs were aching, our shoulders were burning, we were bitten by ticks and we were dropped off a bus…
But the support and willingness of the organisers who always helped and invigorated us – while they were deadly tired – and the way they welcomed us and carefully watched us are all unforgettable!
Thank you all, guys, people, kids!
German positiveness, Spanish laugh, Turkish dance, Finnish eyes, Czech smile, Dutch gambling, Ukrainian magic, Hungarian guitar, Romanian voice and Polish accent, I miss you!
Yours Mother Russia
