Another week passed and new moments were always lived with a good mood. The beginning of the weeks is always marked by activity planning and this week we felt successful.

One month is gone already. A month in which I have felt all the seasons, I have gone through ups and downs and I have had plenty of welcomes and goodbyes. I have just learned how to be a citizen of Baia Mare: get used to the early sunset and to the cold in the [...]
