done | rumeenia pt 2

ecolifeEnne projekti läbi saamist jõudsime käia puud istutamas, teha ‘Teeme Ära’ stiilis koristamist, panna kokku erinevaid teemakohaseid videoid, pidada ära Oscarite gala ja veel viimased kultuuriõhtud. Projekti esimene ja teine pool olid minu jaoks nagu siga ja kägu – kui poole peal oli üks päev selline, kus väga tahtsin juba koju minna, siis nüüd, viimasel päeval, polnud mitte midagi raskemat, kui see lõplik Berliinis lennule minek ja Riiga lendamine. Miski justkui klikkis kuskil seal vahepeal, inimestega suhtlus läks palju vabamaks ja nüüd, kui projekt läbi on, lendas üks pisike osa minust tegelikult üldse teisse riiki, kui Eesti. Ja tükike jäi Rumeeniasse maha. Aja mõiste kadus seal täielikult ära – päevad ei määranud midagi, pidu igal õhtul toimus nii või naa ja nii saigi viimasel õhtul oma toa uks alles kell 7 hommikul avatud. Järgnes jälle 10h bussisõit Bukaresti, mis oli seekord väga palju parem. Bukarestis saatsime järgemööda ära nii tšehhid kui hispaanlased ja lõpuks jäimegi vingete leedukatega kokku.squat-romania-parliament Plaanist öö Berliinis pidu panna ei tulnud kahjuks midagi välja, sest lend sinna lükkus 2h edasi ja kohale jõudsime rampväsinutena alles peale 00 öösel. Esimest korda oli mul lennujaama põrandal magades soe. Soojus oli mu sees ja mu ümber ja just seetõttu oligi hommikune lennukile minek raske. Veider on mõelda, kuidas täiesti võõrastest inimestest on nii vähese ajaga võimalik saada midagi palju enamat, kui lihtsalt sõbrad. Nad on keegi, kellega sa oled kogu selle teekonna ja projekti läbinud ja mõnega veel pikemagi tee.squat-romania

Meie Eesti tiim oli ka super ning juba vaikselt plaanimegi paari trippi lähemale ja kaugemale. Eks näeb. See projekt õpetas mulle palju ja seda just mitte selle konkreetse teema osas, vaid üleüldiselt: tuleb olla rohkem avatum, erinevate inimeste ja erinevate tegevuste osas, passiivsus tuleb maha jätta ja tüüpiline eestlaslik kinnisus samuti. Tuleb märgata imelisi inimesi enda ümber varem, et vältida lõpus neid raskeid lahkuütlemisi.

English: Before the project was over, we also had the chance to virtually plant a tree, participate in a “Let’s do it!”-type of trash picking activity, put together eco life videos and have an Oscar gala and the remaining cultural nights. The first part of the project and the second part were like day and night for me – if at one point there was one day where I really wanted to get home, then now, when it was finally the last day, there was nothing harder than sitting on that plane in Berlin and flying to Riga. Something just clicked inside me at some point, the communication with people was so much easier and now, when the project is over, some part of me actually flew to a different country than Estonia. And some of it was left in Romania. The notion of time had no meaning there – days did not mean anything, there was a party, no matter if it was Tuesday or Sunday and so there I was, finally getting to my room at 7 am on the last morning. What followed was a 10-hour bus trip to Bucharest, which was much better than the previous one. In Bucharest, we sent away the Spanish people and the Czechs and were stuck with the awesome (fucking) Lithuanians. We had a plan to spend our final night partying out in Berlin, but since our Bucharest-Berlin flight was delayed for 2 hours, we reached Germany only after 12 am and all of us were so tired. For the first time, I was warm sleeping on the floor of the airport. The warmth was inside me and surrounded me and that was the reason why it was so hard to get on that plane next morning. It’s weird to think how complete strangers could turn into friends and much more in so little time. They’re someone with whom you’ve completed this project and this journey and plenty more. Our Estonian team was super as well and we are already kind of planning some trips to here and there as well. We’ll see. This project taught me much more than just about eco life: you have to be more open about different people, different activities, not be so passive and leave behind the typical Estonian stubbornness. It is essential to notice amazing people around you sooner, to avoid the bitter goodbyes.
