Today is my 2 week anniversary for being in Romania. It’s a little hard to believe. In some ways, it feels like I just got here, and in other ways, it feels like I left DC forever ago.
Gchat, Facebook, and Skype have become my new best friends…well, more so than they already were.
Here are some new (quick) experiences I don’t think I’ve mentioned yet:
1) Oreos in Romania are kind of gross…which is really sad
2) I went to the grocery store the other day, and my total was 10.04. So, I handed the lady 11. She glared at me and asked if I had the 4 cents (or, at least that’s what I assumed she was asking…). I said no, and she glared at me and handed me my 1 back so she wouldn’t have to count out the change
3) I’ve had to show two different cab drivers where I live on the map and have almost been successful in giving directions
It’s the end of the day, and I need to leave the office. But, I wanted to give a quick update. I’ll write more this weekend.
