It’s our third Halloween in Romania.  I never much liked Halloween at home but here, I like it a bunch.  It’s something different and American and silly fun.  We like it so much so that we helped throw a Halloween party that was covered by the local media. And we dressed up.

This morning, we woke up and while I got our Halloween dinner stew in the crockpot, David made brownies with white chocolate frosting.  This afternoon, we bounced around the library sharing them with everyone — librarians, security guards, cleaning ladies, even the director, wishing them a Happy Halloween.  It was one of those cultural exchanges that puts a smile on everybody’s face. We also busted some gender stereotypes because everyone was shocked when they heard David made them!  David? Bake? Well, yes he did!  And they were tasty.
