Our son, Josh, left yesterday to return to his life in the USA. We had a wonderful visit with him and his sister, Amy. This was their first visit to see our new life in Bucharest.
The day before Josh left we had the perfect storm of block apartment life. No hot water, no heat, and no elevator (we live on the 6th floor). It was a bonding experience as we climbed the flights of stairs and it warmed us for the cold greeting of our apartment. Yes, it was sad to say good-bye but I think North Carolina was looking pretty good to him!
We're grateful for all our family moments together - with or without hot water!
