Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

I also noticed that...

Romanian sounds like the kind of language you should understand. Hello is something similar to salut and good evening is something like bueno sera. It's quite melodic and it is possible to listen to someone speaking it for a good few minutes, believing you are just about to understand exactly what is being spoken about, before realising uh, actually? you're not.

On the drive between the beautiful Romanian mountains and the crazy eclectic Romanian capitol there were a lot of pointy haystacks (which look like this) and people walking cows like they were dogs, or waving sticks at little groups of goats. That was all quite exotic.

The adverts lining the main road tended to have little semi-circular holes cut into them at regular intervals. So the wind doesn't push them over? So they don't totally obscure the view? So people can climb up them with mountaineering ropes? Who knows.

I love going to new countries and seeing what they include as part of their day to day life. Diverse doesn't even begin to describe the EU really does it?
