Today was our first full day in Barlad! Sara, our teammate, and I met our team leader, Mihaela, for the first time as well as her and Dan’s daughter, Delea. It was Delea’s tenth birthday so we were invited to her party at one of their favorite restaurants. It was a very cool experience to be able to compare their birthday traditions to ours. After that, there was a cultural festival right next to our hotel where a famous Romanian singer named Smiley was performing and all the girls were so excited. Even though we were too exhausted to go, we opened our window and got to hear the concert. It was overall a successful first day but we are excited for our first day at the hospital tomorrow.
