Hey! My name is Oksana! I am twenty-two years old. My summer of 2011 was in an International Volunteer Camp. In France) We worked and lived in a place called Vanxains that is in the Perigord Vert district. I am from Belarus. And there I met people from all over the world. Actually just from seven countries. There were people from Spain, Turkey, France, Gambia, Russia and South Korea. You will see the 16th of August. Exciting !
I finally got up! Cute cupcake is happy to see me)
This is the view from my window. The church looks adorable.
Going downstairs to get my breakfast. I am practically the last to do it. The guys are finishing by now.
This is my half international breakfast. Cornflakes of two kinds look delicious. And my huge mug of coffee !)
It is time to take my gloves. Mine are with the hearts and initials.
Our village is a really small one. We have one bar and one bakery. I am not joking. Today we decided to go to the bakery and check the things out.
This guy is not afraid of the camera.
They cook this delicious babies according to the old recipe. Although it is still too expensive.
Some ancient oven.
Yes I really took a picture of the eggs. I justed wanted to show how natural and fair the bakery stuff is. But I was made fun of. I don’t care. Poker face!
So tasty. Oh my! I want to steal this guys!
It is time to work now. Bye, bakery!
This is our work. Not one from my dream. But… I have to put up with it. This is so hot in here (
This wall is a really ancient one. It is about 700 years old. And we are bringing it back to life. Every summer. )
Waiting for our boss.
Here is our boss. He is 31 and likes drinking and joking. A good guy ! )
This is Yana from Russia.
This is Ho. He mixed up clothes and now looks miserable. Working topless is forbidden. Poor Ho.
Today I am working like this)
I am just giving the upper guys all the stuff.
The stones must be put really in order. They should look beautiful together.
While the boss is explaining something , Ho is making faces. ) Behind his back of course!
Resting in the only shadow here. Lucky!
Joking during the break!
Having fun and trying to break the heat.

Korean guys were ready to eat endlessly. And always wanted more.
Here is our timetable. As you see on Thursday it is me who cooks.
