Last 100 Days, Days 70-66

As I’ve mentioned, I’m sharing a photo and a look back on my favorite memories in moments in Moldova for each of my last 100 days here.  I’m counting down, so here are days 70-66.  See all of my “Last 100 Days” posts here.

Day 70: Moldovan sunsets can be stunning, especially during the cooler months. One particular sunset made the entire sky look like it was on fire. It was probably the coolest sunset I’ve ever seen! (December 2016)
Day 69: Teaching English can be fun, especially when I have the opportunity to teach students about traditions from the United States. Leading up to my first Christmas in Moldova, I taught our 4th grade students “Jingle Bells”. (December 2016)
Day 68: On the last day of lessons before Christmas vacation, one of my 4th grade classes surprised me for my birthday with a bunch of balloons, birthday cards, and singing “Happy Birthday” to me in English. It was so sweet of them, and I really enjoyed it! (December 2016)
Day 67: The last day of school before Christmas break was filled with celebrations and concerts by the students. The older students sang, danced, performed skits, and played various games and competitions. It was a lot of fun and I was impressed by the talent of many of my students. (December 2016)
Day 66: I spent Christmas Eve in Chisinau, taking in the Christmas lights and eating dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant with friends. Though different from my Christmas Eve traditions in United States, it was a fun and relaxing night. (December 2016)
