On the 22nd of May, some of our volunteers had a wonderful experience in the rural side of Rm Valcea.
Being honest this was a hard day for us at the beginning. The day in the school was not so good, we had a few arguments with the children and the mood was a bit heavy.
But after school we went to see some ruins at the Buridava Romana Stolniceni, a small space with some roman ruins.
It was a very small place. And unfortunately it was not well taken cared of.
After this it was time to go home. Or so we thought. One of our volunteers wanted to make a surprise for someone special to him, so when we passed by a house with beautiful roses we decided to ask if he could take one flower to give to his girlfriend.
Yes!!That was the end result of "one" flower.
In this adventure we met the Popa family. Maria and Gheorge are the parents and owners of a big rural house that has all to sustain it self.
As you all can see they welcomed us to a big feast. It started with just a glass of Fanta, it was updated to coffee, when we noticed we were having lunch in their house with all these typical delicious food.
Andreea and Laurentiu - Son and wife
The group with Dona Maria and little Stefania
This was a really great and humbling experience for us. We had the opportunity to feel true Romanian hospitality and warmth.
We were also invited to come back and spend some relaxing moments by the river, ride the boat and fishing.
We would like to tell them that we are very grateful that you invited us and for this very special day.
To all the Popa family a big big thank you.
