My goodness it was Wednesday already, the time was flying past. The weather was glorious every day, bright warm sunshine , the girls were quite surprised all this lovelysunshine and warm too in February!!! I thought I would take them up the other end of town where the Orthodox Cathedral stands proudly over looking the city.We called in Ziridava ( a big store) and all the other shops and I picked up some great pork ribs to cook for supper at my favorite shop which is below street level and quite facinating!!
We met Kathy and she took us all to "The Secret Garden" (day centre). It is really looking good now with lovely voile curtains at the windows and little tables and chairs where the street kids sit sipping coffee and chatting.The "girls" met a lot of them and the children and babies and agreed it was a nice place for them all to go. One girl had had a shower and washed her hair and her clothes were being washed, these kids like to be clean when they have the opportunity to be able to do so.
Irina who used to be on the streets is doing a great job helping Kathy and is trying very hard to make a decent life for herself and her little girl,Daniela, good for her, i wish her all the best.
I think it made Angie, Pattie and Betty how hard it is for these people , it makes you appreciate all the little things we all take for granted, soap and running water for a start. They will go home with a different outlook on Romania and be able to tell people first hand what a lovely country it is and how warm and friendly the people are and all hard working, also much more respect from the young people, for instance, when I travel on the tram or bus the young ones will always get up to let me sit down, and help me get on and off the tram!!
Thursday we went to Hungary so more about that tomorrow.
Welcome to my new life
I hope as I tell you the events of my life in Romania you will enjoy and find it as interesting as I have.
