This Friday was quite a special day ...besides the extreme and crazy weather out there as you'll be able to see from these photos, it was a special day as I got to see some old friends again , who landed straight from the Netherlands. So right after school I got picked up by a colleague of mine from my volunteering club, Rotaract, and we went directly to the airport in Bucharest ( after a quick stop at IKEA) I was aware that I should expect a rainy weather that day, so I made sure I was wearing my favourite rubber boots of course, but nothing had prevented the almost apocalyptic scenario we experienced after we took our guests on a small tour around the capital city..the sky turned black in a second and ice began falling down from the sky. In less than two minutes the streets were left deserted, people running to the closest shelters..and as we were stuck in traffic you can imagine my terror ( I have to confess the boys were having quite some fun) but soon it would be all over. A memorable first day in Romania for the foreigners I have to say.
Ziua de vineri a fost una destul de speciala, in ciuda conditiilor meteo extreme si nebunesti as putea spune, dupa cum veti putea vedea si voi in fotografiile din aceasta postare. A fost o zi speciala pentru ca am putut revedea niste vechi prieteni, care au aterizat tocmai din Olanda. Asadar, imediat dupa ce am terminat cursurile la scoala am pornit alaturi de un coleg din clubul de voluntariat din care fac parte, Rotaract, la aeroport, in Bucuresti pentru a-i intampina pe oaspeti. Stiam ca ar trebui sa ma astept la o vreme ploioasa, asa ca purtam cizmele mele preferate din cauciuc insa nimic nu a prevazut scenariul aproape apocaliptic ai carui martori am fost in scurta noastra excursie prin capitala..cerul a devenit negru si in cateva secunda a inceput sa cada o grindina inspaimantatoare. In mai putin de 2 minute strazile au ramas pustii , oamenii alergand dintr-o parte in alta pentru a gasi un adapost..si in timp ce noi eram blocati in trafic, va puteti imagina teroarea pe care o simteam (cu toate ca baietii se distrau destul de bine in aceste conditii) dar din fericire totul s-a terminat repede.
O prima zi in Romania memorabila pentru oaspetii nostrii!

P.S. You might have noticed I had my hair cut, which was only to let it grow up in a more healthy way. I know most of you don't like it like this but it will be back to its old shape in a short time. Promise :)
P.S. Probabil ati observat deja ca m-am tun,insa am facut acest lucru doar pentru a-mi putea lasa parul sa creasca mai sanatos. Stiu ca multora nu le va place aceasta schimbare, insa va reveni la forma initiala in scurt timp. Promit!

Marten, Jaap (my host father from an amazing camp I was a part of in Holland in summer 2011), Daan (Jaap's son) and Bert (Marten's friend) . A short yet great weekend for them too I hope, which made me realize how amazing it is to meet such wonderful people only by travelling :)
Marten, Jaap (tatal meu gazda dintr-o tabara minunata la care am luat parte in Olanda in vara 2011), Daan (fiul lui Jaap) si Bert (prieten cu Marten). Un weekend scurt, insa special si pentru ei sper, care m-a facut sa realizez ce sansa minunata iti ofera o simpla calatorie, de a cunoaste oameni deosebiti :)
