So as the tin says then c: what's up
For me?, well a lot really. After we had the vacation home I went straight to Spain with my class and 2 other classes from school. My class got a artist (he have won prices and been showing off his art around and all) and we did learn a lot from him in color balance, perspective, painting, etc. as well as we got to walk around Cadiz and Sevilla. Just great and beautiful places.
Afterr we we had been there for a week we went back to the school (back to the rain and cold autumn weather) we had like 5'ish days before a few people left again, including me.
So here I am siting at the hotel in Tallinn (Estonia). The school is supporting/helping a place called Petelli church where they take care of children that live in the bad areas, where parents are... Well not the best... Have a hard time putting word on it
Anyways, it was a dam long trip from Risøya to here with bus and boat that is. Really happy I'm on this trip then! Thing is when we got here with the things we had with us, some of the kids helped, but in that they took a lot of the boxes so we just stood there looking awkward while freezing xD
there re is one kid that got really close to me and 3 others, mostly another, but yeah. We meet some nonns and the child started to take a lot of photos with one of our phones, started to film, wanted selfies with us, we gave her some candy and cookies and she was just such a amazing and happy kid while living with those conditions home and can't wait to see her tomorrow and the rest of the kids.
I did do one mistake tho, and that was... One of the people working at the day-care center asked something and it was then I learned that the kids there take what you say 100% and light joking can be serious for them. Me and another joked about taking her with us home and the lady just stared dead eye at us and said "if you say so to them, you have too, we can't let them live in hopes like that" and it kind off set me off, as others was as well joking a bit with it. I think the lady understood that we got a bit set off, and told us at least why and that was that most kids get told this and that by their parents, but never happened and when they got to there they are around now they get their promis done etc.
I can't tell more than this, I will most likely upload when I get home, but not on Sunday, as we get home very late and been driving the whole day from Stockholm. So most likely I'm the week that comes
So, yeah, it's been 2 days more or less since i got back home and i had now to promise a friend to never leave her again as she missed us all
Other than that, on the second day at Tallinn we went to the day-care center and played with the kids. Some lives there and some just stays there for the day-care. Now it was a lot of fun. Katrin was one of the girls i really got a good bond with and i was really sad when we had to leave ;; Beside that, we went to this really bad shaped houses in Kopli where some people live. And have lived there nearly their whole life and some have with no water and no electricity. It was just wow... We got told the smell was bad, but it was only like a basement smell with a mix of pee in the begining of the place. Nothing bad really. And this old man there gave me this candy thing and... I just stood there looking like a idiot thanking him. I was just really shocked about it all and just how nice they are. We got some pictures with them and that and it was an amazing excperience. The whole trip in itself was just amazing to see. I myself come from a rich country where the class different is not so big really. Spoiled people that complain if we don't get what we want for dinner or get annoyed about our TV if it does not work as it should.
I always thought that European countries where not in poor state. I knew there where problems around Spain at least and Italy as i seen it, but Estonia is not so far from Norway tho. I'm glad i went there, and i hope to get back to Tallinn in general for the sightsing and when it's not -1 and down. Not that i'm not used to the cold, but... I had jeans and nothing warm under XD
Other than that, great trip!
