When I decided to volunteer in Romania, I never realized that two countries split for more than 3000 km could have so many things in common. Staying here, talking to people and going in the schools where I am volunteering, I found out these similarities between Romania and Spain:
- We both are speaking a Latin language. So some of the words we have in Romanian are pretty similar in Spanish.
- We love pork meat, ones as much as the others.
- We both have had some influences from Muslim people in the past.
- We are both hospitable with foreign people.
- We both have a phonetic language, which means we read like we write.
- Both countries used to have a dictatorship government last century.
- We have gipsy native people in both countries.
- Both nationality people are considered very hard-working in other abroad countries.
- It’s very common to find chestnut fruits on the street in autumn.
- We can find very Christian practicing people in the little villages.
But, my time in Romania is not over, so I still have a lot of opportunities to discover! I will keep you posted!
