Christmas in Eastern Europe Thu, Dec 12, 2019
I celebrated 2 Christmases (yeah that is how you pluralize Christmas, weird looking right?) in Moldova and Romania. Both were extremely memorable. The first one was very unique because one of the U.S. embassy workers invited us over to celebrate with them. It was awesome because her place felt like home to me, except for the armed guards, cameras, and high security. The picture of me on the stairs, is the ambassadors home. We had a ton of fun, and most importantly got to get out of the cold and relax to some Christmas tunes. We bought these matching vests just for it, and then we burned them after realizing how silly we looked haha
The second Christmas I spent over there was in Iasi, Romania, after a very long trip from Moldova down to Bucharest for administrative stuff -- and then back to Moldova, and then over to Iasi for a Christmas conference, all in two days. It was intense! We also sang some carols on the street - you can see me there with my flute thingy, I was huge.
