Crăciun Fericit

Merry Christmas!! Happy Holidays! I am currently in Barcelona, Spain with my mom and Max celebrating being together and the holidays.

Before I left Moldova though, I got to enjoy some traditional Moldovan Christmas celebrations. I attended a Moldovan Christmas concert at one of the local schools, where all of the schools in the city fielded teams to compete with Christmas carols and plays.

A student I am mentoring from Salut Balti, completed his first volunteer project, collecting toys, organizing a play and concert, for children at a social center here to help them celebrate Christmas.

I also enjoyed a delicious mini-early Christmas dinner of chili, corn bread, southwestern salad and candy canes, with my site mates and a few of our friends here.

About I think about that every day

I guess this blog will be a really long answer to the generic 'about me' question.

  3. Well, we’ll be a day late, but not a dollar short. Sitting in a hotel at DeGaulle wishing we were sitting in a hotel in Barcelona with you. We will see you shortly.
