Sharing some reflections from my first day of site visit…
First of all, I love my site placement! I am so excited about working with ProCoRe and learning from the staff and excited to dig into community projects with them in the Northern part of Moldova. During my site visit, I got some more details about the organization I’ll be working with for 2 years and met my partner and her sister who I will also be working with as well. They are full of energy and are passionate about what they are doing and I am looking forward to working with them.
I don’t really have many photos from my site host family home… yet. They are quite a lovely family, I’ll be living with a host mama and tata and one sister who is about my age. They are very hospitable and my host tata is quite the character and makes me laugh a lot. His personality reminded me very much of my Pap Lucas. I ate really well, more food than I can handle and was able to communicate with my host family better than I thought — and able to carry conversations in Romanian! Hoorah!
Welcome to Bălți… my new home come August after swearing in on July 30th!
