On 31.8 our orientation week program was a trip to the Polli Horticultural Research Centre of EMÜ and a guided tour in the city of Viljandi. In Polli we got to taste all kinds of different apple varieties (including a couple of Finnish ones) and learn about the research they do in the apple gardens, berry collections and “helping entrepreneurs with research and product development” (don’t know how many times those very words were uttered during the few hours we spent there…)
After the apples were all gone we left for Viljandi. It was such a cute town with quite a rich history. Some of the green areas looked like they were part of a museum; flowers at every corner, old trees, small fountains, old buildings with newly painted walls… it was beautiful.
Sorry for the bad quality of the two last pictures…. Facebook downloads… don’t know what happened there…
School starts tomorrow – I can’t wait!!
