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 4: Somewhere over the rainbow.
Summer showers and the setting sun mean gorgeous rainbows over downtown Cluj.

May 1: My puddle jumper.
Here’s a kid who knows how to dance in the rain. Those shoes are toast.

April 16: Stomping grounds.
There’s nothing like splashing through some rapidly drying puddles after an evening of bratwurst and Legos with friends!

July 26: The recycling container for cardboard at the preschool. Romania just recently initiated country-wide recycling. Blue for cardboard, yellow for plastic and metal, and green for glass. There are huge containers like these across the city, though it will take a while before using them becomes a habit. It’s not unusual at all to see parks and sidewalks littered with trash — being conscious of the environment is just not something Romanians have had the gumption, logistical skills, or funding to do. It’s rewarding to be here right now, as things start to change, and to be part of these small steps.

July 25: Trucks, dirt, construction, and thunderstorms … These seem to be some common themes in my photos lately. I just love the juxtaposition here between the rural and the urban, a dichotomy that is so visible across the country.

July 21: In the car waiting to pick the kids up from school on a rainy afternoon. That’s Lollipop in the red sweater at the far right. (She’s also wearing a Tweety Bird party hat from a friend’s birthday party earlier in the day).

July 16: Bird on a wire. It’s been drizzling most of the afternoon, and the dark, heavy clouds are starting to move in, along with a little bit of cool air. The birds are flapping and chirping and bouncing trying to get ready for the storm, except this guy, who’s just watching it all blow in.

June 29: Before-and-after shots from our visit to the park and market. I took the first one because the basketball goal surprised me. (Most kids kick soccer balls around the yard.) But you can also see the gorgeous sky. As we walked home, the afternoon storm clouds came rolling in and opened up on us not long after I snapped the second photo. We got drenched, but the chocolate, fortunately, made it home safe and dry.

June 28: A rainy and cold June day. The kiddos wore winter jackets to school, and the baby and I stayed inside with the windows cracked, our blankets nearby, and banana bread baking in the oven.
