Day 3 in Beius

3 worksites, bear caves, birthdays, and more!


I started off the day with a beautiful early morning run. It was so quiet and peaceful and gave me a chance to reflect a bit on this experience. And take some more pictures of this beautiful town!




Day 3 on the worksite was as Kyle from Texas said "a hot productive day". Our team was split into two locations. A group of four folks went to the first site in Buntesti with Emil and the Turle family. The rest of my group went back to our second site with Mihai and Nelu and finished pouring concrete into the columns for Cristi's house. I finally got to mix concrete with Nelu! We then all went back to Beius for lunch and worked the remainder of the day in the warehouse making the rebar structures.





At lunch Dennis H from Chicago had a birthday surprise - Emil and I got a cake made at the coffee shop and we all sang him happy birthday. Dennis said his birthday was superb and wished that every birthday was this good.


After work we went up to the bear caves, had some dinner, and stopped by the museum and an old beautiful church along the way home. I thank Mihai and Emil for spending the evening with us as our "tour guides".



Today, Thursday, is market day and then we are working on the new house in Beius. Tonight is out last night and this beautiful town before we head to Oradea the morning to help out with the project there.

I am going to miss spending time in my summer home. I can't thank enough the people of Beius for being so kind and welcoming to my group.

Such happy memories! We were there with Victoria College two weeks ago. Great to see the Buntas and the house!
