... into the future a little bit. It's strangely comforting to see that none of the other volunteers really has a plan for this ominous 'Life after EVS' - except for the young ones who are going off to uni. Of course, we also made a bucket list for things we still want to do in and around Latvia (aaargh! mine is so long!) and tried to plan some common activities between the volunteers.

No wonder the mid summer is celebrated with so much gusto and merriment. Tomorrow, we head off to the south west and to Lithuania with our destination being Klapedia.
