Working with the children (teaching English) was a fun way to reinforce the language and an enjoyable way to bond with the kids. Cleaning the Education Center seemed to be very helpful as it needed to be done prior to the next step of fireproofing the building. It also provided an opportunity to enoy the children as they worked along side us. Simona was a wonderful host and staying in her mother's B&B was the perfect cultural experience as we were able to spend time with a Romanian family at meal time. Simona introduced us to many Romanian sights and served as our tour guide during these excursions. I can not say enough about how wonderful Simona was - she worked tirelessly at the center, with us to make sure we had a good experience. I loved seeing how she has established a trusting relationship with the community and the children. Simona is so inspiring.
