Hello, I’m Demet. It’s been 2 weeks since I came to Târgu Frumos. I was very excited when I first got off the plane. I was even more excited as it was my first international travel experience. I took another 6-hour bus ride from Bucharest to Târgu Frumos. The roadsides were full of sunflower fields. And it was green everywhere. I thought it would be very nice to live in this nature. There was a great emptiness and happiness inside me.
When I arrived at Târgu Frumos, Mihaela, Leire, and Krista greeted me. I felt incredible relief when I saw them. Because they were so friendly. I got to know the environment. We started to make products related to the recycling of plastic at the youth center. In the week I arrived, people from different countries came with a youth exchange program. We became a large group.
We immediately started the project and made products from plastic bottles, and together we got to know Romania. Every evening we learned about the culture of another country. It’s always a pleasure to learn something new.
Now I am excited about my ceramic and glass workshop.
