This blog is about the adventures of Anna Sherod in Romania during her Fulbright ETA (English Teaching Assistantship).
Îmi pare bine de cunoștință. (Pleased to meet you.)
More generally, the blog is about reaching across cultures, learning a somewhat obscure foreign language, exploring local food with local people, volunteering in a post-communist society, and most importantly, having grand adventures.
I’m a wanna-be polyglot… but my Spanish and German are rusty, and Romanian’s really hard. Oh the struggle.
My dad is afraid that I’m going to be “a volunteer” forever.
My ETA (English Teaching Assistantship) grant period began in Constanța is at Ovidius University for the first semester. I continued at the University of Bucharest for the second semester, where I’m also working at the Fulbright Educational Advising Center.
