After the presentation, everybody grab an egg painter tool called “irka” and started to paint and create the most creative eggs with the kind help and direction of egg workshop members. While the eggs were dying in the red-indigo paint, the colleagues of the Institute looked up the Village Hall where they could listen to the excellent performance of Algyő’s zhitera music band.
