November 24: Noroc!
We celebrated Thanksgiving at a Romanian restaurant owned by Americans, who cooked up a delicious (and appropriately gluttonous) traditional meal. The English Speakers club in our town organized the event for anyone craving a sweet-potato-laden table. We sat next to two Texans and people from Sweden, Mexico, Germany, and the Czech Republic. There was good wine, good conversation, good stuffing, and amazing apple pie. What more could we ask for? Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
