ABC WEDNESDAY "L" is for "lastiš"

"Lastiš" (LASS-teesh) is a game once played by many young girls here in Serbia, though I must admit I haven't seen any demonstrations in a long, long time. My daughter, now just over thirty, used to love to play. I'm not quite sure of the rules, but it's played with a long stretch of elastic (Lastiš) and somehow vaguely reminds me of jump rope.

What games did you play?


On my way to visit friends on San Juan island. The ferries still are magical to me. Notice the flag is at half-mast, most likely for Rosalyn...
