Amazing hospitality in a beautiful country!
The hospitality given to me and the other partners in Latvia was truly amazing. After many hours working on the Report, we were taken to see the Mezlamina Kindergarten concert at the local Hall. Following the concert, were taken to the house of the Deputy Head where she had arranged a traditional mid summer celebration evening for us. A huge cauldron of soup had been cooking on an open fire all day. This was served topped with sour cream, olives and spring onions along with home baked crusty bread. While eating, the staff sang some traditional Latvian songs accompanied by the music teacher on her accordian.
The following afternoon, the school bus took us on a tour of Latvia, ending up with lunch on the Baltic beach, again accompanied by some of the Latvian teachers who had visited Bowburn during the Project. May I thank them for making my first visit to Latvia so very special. Trish Fay – Project Coordinator
