Mid-Term Training (1/2)

The last week we were in Predeal again for the Mid-Term Training, and it was a bittersweet feeling. On one hand we can come back to the Hotel Eden and enjoy Predeal with a lot of EVS volunteers (we were 66) from the five continents (from Africa – Tunicia, Marroco-, from Asia -Nepal-. from Oceania – New Caledonia- , from America – Perú- and the rest from Europe), almost half of them were with us in the arrival training and we had met many others volunteers in these months in Romania; the sessions were, in general, better and more interesting that in the arrival training, the nights were more quite but maybe, more intense. On the other hand, we met with a lot of volunteers who will leave Romania soon and it´s difficult to meet them again in a short time; another negative side is that this training means we already spent the half of our time as EVS volunteers.

I started this trip with Luca and Aga, we decided to squeeze the long trip to Predeal, and we made a stop in the amazing city of Sighișoara, we spent one day in this beautiful place roaming the narrow streets of the citadel, visiting The History Museum inside the Clock Tower and we even entered the house where the famous national hero Vlad Tepes was born, now reconverted in a hotel with restaurant. It looked like a good place to rest and eat something but the prices are prohibitively expensive for our pockets so we ended up into a small pension eating the most typical Romanian dish (șarmale cu mamaliga și smântână), it was my first time. After that we went to the train station, under the snow which began to fall minutes before, towards Brașov.

In Brașov our friends were waiting for us in “Casa De Cultura a Studentilor Brașov” where they were helping to the “Incubator107 Brașov” in a multicultural event. There we met a lot of unknown volunteers (local ones, EVS from Craiova, Baia Mare…) and other ones already known, after this meeting our friends showed us the nightlife in Brașov (we already knew the city by day) so we went in a taxi to the downtown (it was my first time I was been driven under a snowfall) and we came to a wonderful place, at least for me, Beraria Ciucas. We ate and drank something to go after to another club: For SALE PUB, a typical irish bar where between beers and peanuts where we took shelter from the bitter cold that Brașov offered us that night.

If in our first trip to Predeal we ended up spending the night in Brașov, this time we slept in Brașov just before going to Predeal. So on Sunday  came to Predeal… but that part of the story I will tell you the coming week.

It shall continue… (click here)

Bella Ciao

We´ve lost a member of our family… Grazia Calapai finished her EVS project on November after 10 months and yesterday she came back to Italy. She was the first EVS volunteer I met in Arad, I still remember when I left my room and I could see, in the end of the corridor, to Grazia with Pitta and Nana (Marco came after) since the first moment I felt very comfortable clearing my doubts about this adventure, called EVS, which began for me. She took me to Kf for the first time, Kf is the meeting point for the most of the EVS volunteers in Arad, and I could met a lot of volunteers coming from several countries: Peru, Jordan, Georgia, Armenia, Turkey…

I also remember the first weekend, my first hitch-hick… we went to Timisoara where we were with my roommate Luca and thanks to them I met her friend Pippo and his girlfriend whose gave us place to sleep. I discovered this great city with them, the nightlife as well as we took a walk by the downtown under an awesome sun… And I could keep telling stories about her, about the time that we spend togheter and all the experiences we lived togheter in these three busy months. Budapest, chocolat cakes, the surprise when we arrived from Predeal, tiramisú, a lot of words, sensations and emotions with a common nexus: Grazia

But anyway, althought you aren´t here in a physical way you´ll be always here with us. Now this is our house ´cause you did that possible you made we felt like in our own homes and I´m sure our ways will meet again.

Pupici! Ne vedem!
