I was really lucky that I could stay in Stanciova, it is a beautiful, quiet and calm place and people are nice.
I experienced many new and interesting things there.
I worked in a garden for some hours a day and my host told me how to take care of plants.
Also, we prepared for some workshops of making bread and building a wall in a traditional way and a gathering on weekend. We picked up clay by using a carriage, which was really interesting for me.
What I was impressed in there most is how people manage their lives without technologies. Almost all of things are on hands such as wood stove, making a wall, arranging furniture, making a sink, connecting water pump..
They have wisdom of lives which people in cities forgot depending on technologies.
I really had an amazing time.
