I’ve been here, in Romania, for about a week now and am loving it. The first couple of days were mostly travel and the last few were taking it easy. We haven’t really been many places in the city, more seeing family and catching up. Now that I think about it, I never mentioned how I ended up getting here. I’ll tell you all about in another post. 🙂
It’s been awesome getting to know this whole other part of the family here. Everyone is so much fun and they are so inviting. Lemme tell you about em’:
These are my aunts and uncles with my dad. From left to right there is Teu, Adina, my dad, Tabita, Petru, and Ica. I have one more uncle, Filip, that wasn’t able to make it from Spain. My dad hasn’t seen his brothers and sisters in over 25 years, so this trip has been a lot of meeting family and them reminiscing.
Ever since I was little, everyone always said I look so much like my aunt Adina. It was really nice to FINALLY meet my twin in person. Ha!
Baby Matias! The smallest of the group, and oh so sweet. (When he wants to be.)
This is Manase (Mah-nah-seh). He LOVES to sing. He started belting it out while everyone else was trying to chit chat, so we told him to go sing for the dog. But of course he had to get his book of hymns (his hot wheels coloring book) so he could sing the song properly. I also took a video.
My aunt Tabita and my dad’s cousin Claudia. They are both so sweet. We are staying at Tabita’s and having SO much fun. Her and her husband are more than great hosts, and we laugh so much with their kids (Ovy and Claudiu).

The very popular game of ping pong. The even have ping pong tables in the parks! My cousin Clau is the reigning champion between the relatives. Here he is beating my dad.
It’s been so great getting to know all of this family (there are way more than just the ones pictured). I’m happy to be part of such a loving group of people. I think we’re going to see more of the city tomorrow, so i’ll try to post more soon!
