Today was the national clean-up day here in Romania-or "Let's Do it Romania" to be exact. Started in 2010, it's a day where almost every county in Romania gathers it's citizens to picks up trash.
The day started in the park where I met up with around 60 students and some teachers. We split into teams (Team Rockstars here) and walked to different areas to clean.

|Silvia, coordinator extraordinaire.|
|Nothing like finding a jaw bone.|

It was SO HOT outside but the kids were great, working hard to collect over 125 bags of trash throughout Recas. I was so happy to see that after doing this three times in Recas, the amount of trash we found was significantly smaller than when we started cleaning up 2 years ago. The first year we collected over 400 bags of trash, so 125 bags today-PROGRESS!
Great way to start my weekend.
