As one old lady once told us “you’re like birds, you fly away when winter comes and spend summer in Estonia”. The leaves are turning yellow, the weather is getting cold(er) and there are so many unmistakable signs that summer has ended, it must be time for us to go back to France. We held our promise as good estonians would. We came back. Estonia has become our second home though this time we discovered so many new things we hadn’t seen as volunteers.
As last time, it was hard to part, but concerts, restaurants, tea with friends, made things easier. We received even some mysterious gift from unknown people in Joelähtme with “have a happy life” written on it with money, sweets, a small painting and a very lovely card but though we do not know who gave this to us, this is another proof (as if we needed more !) that we have been more than well greeted in Estonia. But cheese, family, and friends are calling. A new life, new work (we hope), is waiting for us.
The best thing was to sing together (see video) and we also rented a private sauna to party with the volunteers which added to the warmth of these last days. A second time on this blog we want to thank you as well for following our adventures and hope to keep you posted on future news about Estonia.
