Romania in “The Washington Post” through the eyes of a former ambassador

I think each country has something special that deserves to be discovered. Actually I think that each town, each person has a story to tell – the only condition is that someone should truly want to discover it.

As I mentioned before I’m from Romania. We have already presented here some interesting places in this country, both us and our guest posters. But we may be biased, one could say.

twp_logo_300This morning a friend of mine recommended me an article in “The Washington Post”. The title was pretty exciting: Think Italy, not vampires but then I saw the subtitle: A fondness for the U.S. is in Romanians’ blood.

It was definitely a must read. The article presents an interview with Sheilah Kast and Jim Rosapepe, authors of the new book “Dracula Is Dead: How Romanians Survived Communism, Ended It, and Emerged Since 1989 as the New Italy.” Jim Rosapepe is a former U.S. ambassador in Romania.

The article presents the impressions of someone who lived here for a few years. The ambassador’s impressions are thus inspired by local reality – and not the one you see in several days. I recommended this article to you – not because it presents my country, but because it provides an interesting point of view and it suggests some special places and… well, read it and you’ll see for yourself what more. Think Italy, not vampires
