Echoes of Estonia by Liam Kivirist

During his time in Estonia, Chicago Eesti Maja member Liam Kivirist had the incredible opportunity to participate in the “Back to Our Roots Youth Exchange”, which brings people of Estonian descent from around the world to join locals on a 10-day adventure around the country, experiencing Estonian culture and exploring the topic of migration. He shares his experiences in Estonia for those that may be interested and hopefully bring the annual project to the attention of more Estonians abroad who would be eligible to participate.
