Today we had our first summer session at Lesnoe Ozero.
The first day of our Family and One-Week programme was full of new experience for the villagers and their parents: they traditionally passed таможня (customs) where they chose Russian names for the camp, went to a bank desk where the exchanged US dollars for рубли (Russian roubles), and finally gathered at столовая (dinning hall) to have a Russian dinner.
Before going to bed the villagers met around bonfire in a picturesque corner of Lesnoe Ozero. The warm and friendly atmosphere let us discuss the meaning of the "global citizenship", importance of the cross-cultural education, and responsible attitude to the nature.
