June 16: Away we go.
La revedere, Cluj-Napoca. We’ll see you again. We will.

June 14: Swingers.
A Romanian-Hungarian friend invited us over to her house to say goodbye today. Even though we had very few words in common, some things were easy to understand, despite our language differences: her puppy, two pet bunnies, fresh cucumbers, sliced bread, strawberry cake, shade from a cherry tree, and porch swings in the afternoon sunshine.

June 12: Cat calls.
Lollipop had her end-of-year show at preschool today. She and her 17 classmates dressed up like cats, recited poems, sang songs, and danced a blue streak to classics like “Rhythm Nation” and “So Long, Farewell.” And then they got diplomas and graduation caps to officially commemorate the end of preschool and the beginning of elementary school. Luckily, I was too busy fiddling with the camera settings to get teary-eyed.

June 11: Happy feet.
Giggles and his preschool colleagues had their end-of-year show today. Imagine 12 four-year-olds dressed like penguins … and the reality was a thousand times cuter than that!

June 10: Bye-bye, bunnies.
In true Romanian style, we threw ourselves a going-away party on Sunday. Despite trying to give away many of our things, we were inundated with thoughtful, personal, touching gifts, from an ostrich egg to this book of Romanian photographs being inscribed by its giver. It was a wonderful, albeit bittersweet, party.

June 7: Drop everything.
Nearly every afternoon here begins with a summer rain shower. And afterward, the air is cool and (mostly) sweet. I love it. I will miss it. I am not looking forward to going back to a place where the only thing rain does is turn the city into a sauna!

June 5: What a difference a year makes.
A year ago, we got off the plane in this strange, new place. Tonight, we watched a film (a really, really wonderful film!) at the Transylvania International Film Festival. Wow, where did those 365 days go?

Summer showers and the setting sun mean gorgeous rainbows over downtown Cluj.

May 31: Get on the bus.
These are Cluj’s bus tickets. We always have a few used ones floating around since my husband frequently takes the #35 to work. And the kiddos love to reuse them … as imaginary bus tickets or plane tickets or credit cards or party invitations or grocery lists or taxi receipts or …
