There was a quite big event in Palsue. This is the beginning of the summer season, and luckily we had a wonderful weather on saturday. The Boat event had a diverse program, like basketball, volleyball, concerts, "figuriada", fireworks and of course boat races. I was very happy because a lot of pepole came from Ignalina and surrounding villages. The village was full of life and we enjoyed it very much.
At the beginning of summer Paluse is pretty quiet, but day by day more and more tourists come for holidays. It was a very good opportunity to take part in the traditional boat races and celebrate with local people.
By the way Cihan visited us, actually he is living in Utena. He is also volunteer from Turkey, we met on the arrival training and he is living the closest place among volunteers. So I guess it was the best occasion to meet with each other.
the boat race, I did my best :)
