Episode 3 – How is Christmas celebrated in Romania

“The city during Christmas seemed to be very calm with lots of Christmas holiday spirit and the thing that I enjoyed the most was when the people went to the streets in Iasi and started singing Christmas Carols. I loved the food, my favorite is sarmale (stuffed cabbage rolls), cighiri and papanasi. The fact that was snowing and it was so much colder than in Mexico, reminded me of Christmas and let’s not forget all your Christmas traditions and stories. I miss all of the people that I met which made me have the best experience of my life.”  – Álvaro Cabrera Ávila, Mexico

“When I arrived, the city had a festive atmosphere and I liked the people I met here, they were the friendliest I’ve met and the lights were festive.” – Robert Shek, New Zealand
