In sunny April afternoon in the Open Youth Center „Vartai” was Balkan day. Together with guests from Macedonia and Serbia (and assistants from Germany, Spain and France) we tried to bring a small part of a hot Balkans to “Vartai”.
It was day in the rhythms of Balkan. Throughout the day, we listened to the best music of the Balkans. But the central event of the day was cooking. In these countries, food is not just dish. It is an essential part of culture. Even small part of it is like a miracle.
And after that we tried some traditional Balkan dances. It seems almost impossible to keep track of these temperamental Balkan steps.
It seems succeeded, although just a little, to feel the sun of Balkans in “Vartai”.
