Monday afternoon I visited the orphanage at Gavojdia with three Romanian friends. The children are so hungry for affection, and I love affection, so that works. I picked up some vocabulary, too, but unfortunately that means I have the vocabulary of a three year old girl... haha... This week a group is here from GA on a mission trip, so in the afternoons I will go with them and one of my friends here to that orphanage to spend time with the kids.
Other new experiences this week:
- Mineral water from Buzias (supposed to be good for sickness, but it tastes disgusting. My theory is that is makes you forget whatever was wrong with you because your taste buds are so angry.)
- Gypsy encounter on the sidewalk - we bought some rasberries from her and she yelled at me for not knowing Romanian OR German! Oh well. I'm learning.
- Thrift store! I bought some awesome Puma tennis shoes (the style here) for 6 Lei/$2 US.
