Me, my host mother Nanuca, and our friend Tom in the summer of 2008. We're standing near our gazebo, which is covered with grape vines. Over the course of my service many a meal and conversation were had in that gazebo.
This photo was taken September 27th, 2010 in a garden near Chiprovtsi, Bulgaria. I spent the day harvesting grapes for homemade wine with my friend, Yulka (pictured). She taught me folk songs while we worked.
