Last day in Jaunpils, May 12th – The Big Show!

So finally the last day came. A sunny but cold day brought us to a moss where we went on foot. On wooden planks we walked in a long row, like pearls in a necklace.  Ķemeri Moorland (Lielā Ķemeru tīrelis) is special for its great biological diversity, the unique Kemeri Bog, mineral waters and therapeutic mud found here. A boardwalk took us to the world of moss, small pine trees, deep pools, tiny dark lakes, and the smell of wild rosemary. They told us not to leave the boardwalk since the ground is extremely swampy, you can sink and disappear, so they told us.  We climb to an observation platform that offered a magnificent view of the bog from above. The sunshine and the fresh air made us feel easy and happy.  Then we went to the beach, a beautiful white sandy beach, in which many (well, some) of us did not manage to stay away from the water.

After lunch at school, the last rehearsal began. We were to participate in the school concert. The students had been training for months and we, all groups from the different countries, would perform our presentations. Some of us had dance, group dance and solo dance; some had a song in different tones, some had made a movie.  Presentations fit into a theater play and we behaved like kings princesses, giants and much more. The castle’s large hall was full of students, teachers and parents. When the show started, everything worked perfectly. With the applause rising in our heads, we walked back to school for a small celebration, which was also a farewell party.
