Thursday 14th January 2010
Yesterday was the day that our
beloved parents and siblings came to
see what it is we actually DO at camp
(in other words to see if their kids are
getting their money’s worth.)
The banner was erected, the
volleyball court got heated & the
synchronised swimming routines
demonstrated the inner grace &
acrobatic abilities of all our happy
And we wont even mention the
flexing of the muscles that went with
the tug of war competition, where
at one point in time both teams had
their ropes tied around a tree.
It was great to see so many parents
participating in, and enjoying the
program along with us, and we
sincerely hope the blisters aren’t
to science, who lives in the tropical
forest. He accidentally gets into a
crate of oranges, (possibly American
or Australian as the crates are
labeled in English) eats his fill, and
falls asleep. Cheburashka is not a
personal name; it is a species name
invented by the puzzled director
of the shop where he is found. The
salesman takes the animal out and
Cheburashka is a character in
children’s literature, from a 1966
story by the Russian writer Eduard
Uspensky. He is also the protagonist
of the stop-motion animated film
series by Soyuzmultfilm studio, the
first episode of which was made in
According to the story, Cheburashka
is a funny little creature, unknown
sits him on the table, but his paws
are numb after the long time spent
in the crate, and he tumbles down
a Russian colloquialism, “tumbled”
in English) from the table onto the
chair and then from the chair, where
he could not sit, for the same reason,
onto the floor. The director of the
shop, who witnesses the scene, called
Good at Math?
Here are some good old unfinished
sequences of numbers:
Connect all the following dots with
only 4 lines.
1, 4, 9, 25, ...
1, 2, 0, 3, -1, 4, ...
1, 2, 5, 10, 17, ...
5, 9, 16, 28, ...
Figure out what the next number
going to be.
Answer to the question
on page 4:
Yesterday at campfire we have heard
(and participated in) a popular song
from a Cheburashka cartoon (as sang
by Gena the Crocodile character).
Those of you who did not have your
share of Russian toons, should know
that the cartoon is very popular and
there is not a single person in Russia
who doesn’t know its story. The
newspaper crew could not passup an opportunity to explore this
subject and we hope you will learn
PUZZLE BY RAVEN
Bonus points to a patrol who
figures today’s puzzle before
tomorrow’s newspaper is
Consider a road with two cars, at a
distance of 100 kilometers, driving
towards each other. The left car
drives at a speed of forty kilometers
per hour and the right car at a speed
of sixty kilometers per hour.
A raven starts at the same location
as the right car and flies at a speed
of 80 kilometers per hour. When
he reaches the left car he turns his
direction, and when he reaches the
right car he turns his direction again
to the opposite, etcetera.
What is the total distance that the
raven has traveled at the moment
that the two cars have reached
Cheburashka is now a staple of
Russian cartoons, and there are
several licensed products on the
market, such as children’s anecdotal
books and stuffed toys. He is also
one of the few Russian animation
characters to be a subject of
numerous Russian jokes and riddles.
Here is an example:
Liz Carles now officially has the
evilest glare at camp.
Гена: ‘Чебурашка, а
тебе твои уши нужны?’
Чебурашка: ‘Да Гена.’
Гена: ‘Хе хе, на!’
In terms of entertainment value it
was hard to suprass the image of a
blind-folded Volchonok or Ptenchik
swinging away with the back of a
rake at two extravagently painted
The wil swings would be
accompanied by commentry to the
effect of “Go left, no right, more
right. Go left i said!”
Ах ты моя душечка,
На тебя щекой ложусь,
За тебя рукой держусь.
Если жить с тобою дружно,
И в кино ходить не нужно!
Лёг заснул - смотри кино
Ведь покажут всё равно!
Без экрана, без билета,
Я смортю и то и это!
Например вчера во сне,
Что показывали мне?...
Я крутился, я крутился
Наконец я приземлился
От кровати в друч шагах
И с подушечкой в руках
Ах ты моя душечка, белая
Ptenchiki and Volchata launched their
rockets up yesterday. Some of those
whizzed-up so fast, the outer layer of
paper was left behind while the main
body flew high and then plummeted
down into near-by shrubs.
We have had a new tool in the pool
yesterday - a sturdy waterproof
and shock-proof camera which was
hijacked for the entire 1.5 hours of
pool time and only given back at
the end with 108 new underwater
photographs of various degrees of

The entertainment value of launches
was great as it got everyone’s
attention and looked semi hi tech
because of the preasuriser bought
specifically for this task.
If nothing else, our very
detailed, stylish and vivid
banner provided a good
shade for our visitors.
