The difference in the perception of money between the Lithuanian kids and American counselors was often interesting . . .
Though not all of them fit into the 'poor' post soviet refugees (Many had cameras, cell phones and mp3 players), they are hardly well off. It was therefore their assumption that all of counselors were quite rich (Though, perhaps, relative to them we were)
One of them looked at my suite, made in China, on the second Shabbos in camp and asked to know the name.
'Cianni della Cina' I told him (Cianni - the brand name - of China)
"Wow!" he said, touching my jacket with awe, "That's like an Armani!"


Rička speaks about himself and camp

Little Boruch tries to take a tomato from a neighbor's garden. He rarely speaks above whisper, due to his reportedly abusive home life.

Stay tuned for the next installment.
