After we met in Tallinn, a large ferry brought us to Orisaare, the first Living Legends stop of the second part of the tour on the old continent in Estonia. We were staying in Mikk's house, who is one oft eh Kinobuss guys in !! His family welcomened us incredibly friendly and from the moment we arrived we felt at home. We have eaten delicious homemade food all week with a lot of cream on top and we feel that we gained a few extra pounds, but we are all happy and hopefully we will have time to do a little excercise in the next stop ...
The landscape here is very different, our host took us on an intense tour of the island every afternoon after the workshop, we visited all the island's sights, churches, forts, meteorites, marshes and forests. Andrey one of the most enthusiastic colombians took photos at every moment and impressed by the landscape he kept saying "Huy, but this is very cute !!" For Latinos, seeing snow has been one of their biggest dreams and one morning the desire was fulfilled and everything dawned white! I myself was thankfull but also hoped that it will not stay long because the cold was powerful. Other afternoons we were distracted by counting the people who passed by, since the island is small and people do not leave their home so often... and in the sauna! I think now we are even more friends with Estonia, because people go to the sauna at least once a week.
The workshop was another adventure, especially because of the language and the new stories, colors and textures to collect,. Blues, grays, greens and browns predominate here and in the stories we discover more about the place, the sea, its ancient gods. We visited very beautiful houses built in stone and wood with beautiful gardens full of colorful flowers. Estonians smile when they hear Spanish, but somehow we understand each other. Four films will soon join those produced in Latin America and will add on our story map.
