Bemidji-Minnesota

10

Some friendly deer I met at Paul Bunyan’s Animal Land in Bemidji, Minnesota.  Thought I would share something different. 

The first deer I spent at least half an hour petting.  He was just a big baby with antlers.  ^__^  The last one is the elusive albino devil deer.  Actually, I made that up.  XD  I don’t remember what that breed is called.

This time last year I was preparing to move away from my home and everything I knew to pursue my career… A thousand miles away in Northern Minnesota. It was a tough decision, and some times I think I regret it because of what it cost me (someone I love.) But then I remember all the amazing friends I made and still talk to every week. I remember seeing, and being inside, of the Aurora Borealis (northern lights,) spending 4th of July watching fireworks with the entire Kamaji Crew in town at the beach, eating lunch at the vegan cafe, The Cabin, every chance I got, walking around downtown Bemidji with my wonderful room mates Rachael and Aimee, catching over fifty frogs and putting them in the boys’ cabin plus the slew of other ridiculous pranks Aimee (aka Thacker Jacker,) Rachael (aka Smiles,) and I (aka Snortz) pulled on the boys, waking up to beautiful sunrises and falling asleep to beautiful sunsets over the most beautiful river… So many amazing memories of last summer that I will never forget.

The great thing about @lesnoe_ozero #RussianLanguageVillage is that we learn #Russian while we are also learning about culture! Yesterday we celebrated the #RepublicofTuva. While the entire day was filled with learning activities focused on the Republic of #Tuva my favorite part was making Tuvan dumplings together and learning more about Tuvan kitchen, language and culture. We had a ton of fun and the dumpling were yummy too!

More about our fun day from the Lesnoe Ozero blog:

“The Republic of Tuva It is a part of the Russian Federation that lies in the geographical center of Asia, in southern Siberia, and is the home of three of our staff members this year. During the evening the villagers were able to be taught a traditional Tuvan dance, to play classic kids Tuvan games, to learn words and expression in Tuvan language, to try Tuvan wrestling, to listen to Tuvan throat singing and even to practice lassoing horses on the Siberian steppe.”

My Russian name - who knows how it’s pronounced?


I’m on day 6 of my 30 days at @lesnoe_ozero #RussianLanguageVillage #languagecamp and so far it’s been great. I can even understand some of what the counsellors are saying :) 🚀🚀👏🏻😊🚀

On the first full day of the @lesnoe_ozero #RussianLanguageVillage #camp we were busy all day! In this picture we are preparing for end of the day relays and then a campfire with lots of Russian songs. I have cut and pasted a segment of the @lesnoe_ozero post about this day to tell you more about the day (I’m a part of the credit program which is one month long) :


“While two-weekers were signing up for different activities during hours of culture - стрельба из лука (archery), сказки (Russian fairy tales), the history of баня (Russian sauna), sports and фенечки (bracelets creation), credit program students contunued to improve their language skills with their professors.

All villagers were split into groups according to their language level and started the lessons. Beginners were taught to introduce themselves, intermediate level students were discussing their preferences, advanced and heritage speakers were reading and retelling stories.

In the evening we had so much fun and joy doing эстафета (relay). All villagers participated in the competition and finished the day together around traditional bonfire.”
