These Romanians are crazy

Romania. Lovely and yet pretty crazy.

Good morning everybody! A good start of the Saturday with CBRL and Denise.

I will participate in the elections believing that Romania can be a nation as prosperous as the rest of the European nations. Sibiu, which I have been leading since 2000, is an example that this is possible. If it is possible in Sibiu, it is possible in the whole of Romania.

Romanian defender Cosmin Moti forced to go in the goal yesterday and made two penalty saves to send Ludogorets through to Champions League group stage. Yes, Ludogorets, and not Steaua Bucharest. Moti was the only Romanian in the Bulgarian team and from all people he is the one who blocked the Champions League dreams of Steaua. Well, it’s a shame, but it’s a beautiful sports story too. And Cosmin Moti is a Romanian also. It was a special day for football lovers.

The Romanian capital had been a revelation. Despite Ceausescu’s best efforts to bulldoze in massive Soviet monuments, the historic old town is still filled with crumbling French buildings – many of them now bars, or spaces for outdoor raves on hot weekends. The whole city is bursting with energy – outdoor barbecues rub shoulders with new shopping centres, ancient churches, empty 1970s blocks, and tiny bars in courtyards.

Okay, this is going to be the next hit in Romania, I guess…

A catchy little song from Kio and What’s Up.

The Science Cafe & Library in Chişinău, Moldova looks stunning. So inspiring!

Ah, the sausages of Plescoi: they’ve got a warm place in my heart. This sausage is traditionally made in and around Pleşcoi and is popular in the whole of the Buzau region, and now also in the rest of Romania. I love them. Bonus: there’s a kitten on the photo.
