We're Here!

After a fairly turbulent flight that led to an hour or so delay of dinner, we dined on fine airplane food and promptly fell asleep a few minutes afterwards. Our layover and flight from Frankfurt to Bucharest allowed us to stretch our legs (i.e. terminals at opposite ends of airport) but was otherwise uneventful. At the arrival gate, we were greeted by a smiling Mihail, who had hired a bus for us to travel to Valea Screzii. The bus driver made a pit stop to pick up some bread sticks in the shape of rings all tied together on a piece of twine.

When we arrived at the orphanage, it was a reunion with old friends for Ms. Stone and Ms. English and a meeting of new friends for the Romania newbies. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner together featuring pizza, salad and soup prepared by Melanie and Veureka. Students and chaperones are now settling in and unpacking. We are definitely going to bed early tonight and will be sleeping in tomorrow.

Talk to you then!
