On Sunday I went to visit my permanent site. I was so proud of myself for taking the bus to Chisinau alone (not really high on my worry list), getting to the Gara de Nord, finding my Ruteria and making it to Rascani. When I got there my new partner was waiting for me with a taxi, we then drove through town, she showed me the where the office was, the police, hospital, stadium and house of culture. We got to my new house and my new host mom was super excited, and so sweet. We all had dinner, my partner left and my host mom showed me around her house and her garden. The garden is massive, and gorgeous!
I was pretty tired the first night, so I went to bed pretty early. On Monday I got up and my host mom walked me to the office where I spent 90% of my day online reading blogs….hard work I know. When I got home later I relaxed for a bit, and my host moms children came over. They are all older than me, I think there are 4, and at least 2 live in Riscani. We had dinner outside and drank way too much wine….oops.
On Tuesday I went back to Chisinau with my partner where we had a site conference with all the ARBDs and partners. I think I am going to have a lot of fun in my new host family and place of work
