Count the Stars

In large cities, it is difficult to see the stars in the sky. But in Bernāti it is easy! One will need a lot of patience to count all the stars. But that’s not the most important. Maybe it’s best to spend one night together with the stars.

How to count stars?

  1. Wait for the darkness to come.
  2. Pack your pockets full of biscuits, candy, and all sorts of other treats.
  3. Make hot tea to take with you in a takeaway mug.
  4. Also take a pillow and a warm blanket and go out.
  5. Put the blanket on the ground, put down the pillow and lie down so that you can see the sky. Do not do the other way around.
  6. Then start counting the stars.
  7. When all the stars have been counted, pockets emptied, you can close your eyes and continue experiencing another journey.
