On our way

In 5 minutes the cab will be here, to take us to the airport.

Starting today, we’ll be in Hurghada, Egypt for a week. I’d love to keep you posted or at least upload some pictures, but Alina, CrenguÅ£a’s sister has lost the data cable of the camera. And I’m not sure the hotel has an Internet connection, although it probably does. We’ll see.

Happy Easter everyone!

April Updates

April 17 was the 5th anniversary of our marriage! Happy anniversary, honey! I know it’s a bit late, but better late than never šŸ™‚ .

Anyway, I didn’t forget about it (well, I did, we both did, but I was reminded by my mother-in-law, who called that morning to congratulate us), so we properly celebrated it that night with a romantic dinner in a very chic restaurant. I just didn’t find the time to write about it. Continue Reading

Romania, year 2008

When I started typing the title, I accidentally wrote “Tomania”, the country of dictator Adenoid Hynkel in Charles Chaplin’s masterpiece The Great Dictator.

Although it was just a simple mistake, it proves to be incredibly appropriate.

In a country of the European Union, Romania of the year 2008, the vice president of the National Liberal Party, a governing party who’s president is the prime minister, declares this (my approximate translation):

RO: “…mai bine se face o eventuală nedreptate decĆ¢t să fie tolerată o dezordine”.

EN: “…It’s preferable to have a possible injustice rather than tolerating disorder.”

I am really, really ashamed I am a citizen of this country, and it saddens me even more remembering I had the opportunity to leave for good, and I didn’t.

There is no hope, this country will never change. This nation is like a flock of stupid sheep, constantly driven over the cliff by scum rulers.
