Today at breakfast, we learned how to describe lots of different kinds of weather, which came in handy, since today was by turns warm and sunny, cool and cloudy, and torrential downpour.
At our evening program tonight, we learned about the tradition of a camp kontsert (variety show) in Russia and had time in our cabin groups to come up with ideas for our own end-of-camp performances and even to rehearse a little bit.
It was a great first full day of camp today! We began the day with morning exercises and learning a few lines from our poem of the week.
The day we have all been waiting for has finally arrived: our villagers are here!
We’ve all seen how Lesnoe Ozero offers a rewarding experience for Villagers of all ages—but did you know that Russian can open many doors beyond Minnesota? We talked to Nadia “Nadia” Braun and Yasha “Yasha” Hoffman, both of whom will be Fulbright Scholars during the next academic year, to learn more about how the skills they gained at Lesnoe Ozero will help them in their upcoming adventures.
