Museum evening in Ginučiai watermill

This week we took part in a presentation about own country folk costume. So We prepared some interesting facts and videos about traditional folk art. Sadly no one of the local people showed up, but anyways our colleagues with their families were there. We had a lot of fun, tea and cookies. We learned a lot about our own traditions and as well about Lithuanian folk costumes. It was a special day for me because my mother came to visit me. The presentation was a challenge for me because I never did it before. So all in all we had a very nice event we hope for the next event more local people will come.

First days


Here is our Volunteer story in Lithuania, Susi from Germany and Zsani from Hungary. We arrived 1 month ago and are living at the nature school. Our working place is the national park centre in Palῡšė. We participated on some events, like Easter and cleaning events. We really enjoyed playing and painting eggs with children, they were very friendly. Events like these are good opportunities to learn about Lithuanian culture and habits. Also we hope that our cleaning events motivate people to care more about the environment.
