International Women’s Day

Had an early start this morning with breakfast at 8 o clock.

Kicked off the day with a trip to the Negru Voda school where we received a warm welcome. As today was International Women’s Day all the girls were given flowers and a traditional bracelet. We also received a surprise visit from the mayor.

The children from the kindergarten performed an excellent short play for us followed by an unbelievable performance by dance students from the high school.

After lunch we went to the Negru Voda home where we were given a piece of bread that was dipped in salt as part of a traditional once entering in to the house. We then did some arts and crafts with the beneficiaries and had a great time! We’re now back at the hotel and will be having our language workshop shortly. Stay tuned for more updates on our trip!!
