Tuesday 23.4. Second day of our visit in Kaliningrad.

Tuesday 23.4. from classroom activities and sightseeing in Kaliningrad:
 Beautiful easter eggs made with colourful beads by clever and patient hands!
 Look at the needlework!
 These beautiful pictures are made with amber collected on the seashore by the children!
Sightseeing in Kaliningrad city, here at one of the six old city gates

 Immanuel Kant's grave at the old Königsberg cathedral.

We also paid Maxim Gorkij a visit!
 Always fresh flowers at this World War II Memorial. The memories are still strong, and lots of people have a relative lost in the war.

Here we are!

Just a few glimpses from our first day in Kaliningrad and Skola Internat no 7. We arrived safe and sound yesterday afternoon and settled in our various homes, and met this morning (Monday 22.4.) to have a look around the orphanage and to see what has been done. We also participated in "Master classes" and learned to make beautiful items by our hands, and we visited the zoo together with a group of children. The spring has arrived, it was sunny and warm, and we had a great day!

Patience and accuracy is needed, and this boy has got it! A great picture of two pandas is coming to life between his fingers.
Albina told us what had been done, Maxim translated and we listended.
 Deep concentration.
 Trying to copy these beautiful matrjoskas, step by step.
 Very proud of our craftsmanship!
 Russian and LSK matrjoskas...

We had to have an icecream, of course!
