Painting the walls of Ligzda’s stairway

Безымянный

My friend working at Ligzda society wants to bring together creative-minded people who are open to new ideas and are not afraid to exercise them. The workers and volunteers decided to make the entrance to the organisation more beautiful and welcoming. They planned to paint the walls of the stairway. At the end there will be the map of Europe and some mosaics of colour to continue like evolution to garden with a lot of flowers and big parrot. We could choose what we wanted to paint. We painted the flowers. There were also the kids from Tukums painting with us and they painted the mosaics. We enjoyed the afternoon together and did a good job at the wall. The stairs to the centre will look much nicer and friendlier after the paint is finished. It is still a lot of work but I am glad we helped them to have nice place.

Portuguese Lunch in Latvian city Sigulda

To taste Portuguese culture and food in Sigulda where tree Portuguese people are living was really pleasure for me. Two of them made Portuguese lunch. The cooking for more than twenty people is not easy so they invited us to help them with the food preparation. They were cooking two days – first day they baked the cakes. The second day we came and prepared Rissóis de Carne and Pastéis de Bacaihau. So I had a chance not only to taste the Portuguese food but also to learn how to cook it. In the morning, before the lunch we prepared a lot of potatoes and other stuff for the main dish Bacaihau á Brás. We prepared main dish and tasted Portuguese wine, we also looked at the photographs and we spoke about the country with Portuguese people and others who lived there or just visited this beautiful country. I want to visit the Portugal soon.
