A walk around Smiltene
On the second day after the lunch we had a walk around Smiltene. We talked about pollution in Smiltene,saw polluted places. For example, water pollution in lake Teperis and dangerous hug-weeds and insects. Then we went to Smiltenes technical school and talked about it's history. Thereare still ruins of the castle from 12th century and baron's house. We talked about and how to protect old bouldings and keep for the future.
In Norway we have the same problems as in Latvia, people are dumping their trash in lakes, rivers and the wood, because as we heard from Latvians there are no punishment for such action. And the companies and factories make pollution in the air, like in Smiltene it is the dairy.
There are also some ugly buildings which spoil the scenery near the lake. We think that people have to take care of their surroundings.
