Voluntary week

This week is a “Voluntary week” in Romania. So every non-government organization prepared special programs and events for this week to encourage people to voluntary work. We had also some games and presentation in Economic High School in Brasov. In one of the class, we met boy who has been a volunteer in other ngo –  Centrul de Voluntariat Brașov. He invited us to eco workshop. Afternoon we spent with him and his friend from organisation.... Read More

Let’s go to the Cinema!

On summer, cultural events increase and fill easily magazine’s cultural agenda. However, setting aside this seasonal trend… it seems that Brasov wants to grow culturally! I got surprised when I knew about Brasov Best Film Festival. It promotes communication and work made by students, an opportunity to show and share ideas. Of course, no one can know what will happen within these amateurs career. But is true that this kind of events which... Read More

Arrival to Brasov and chilling out …… ( Sinaia Castle )

Merhaba ! 🙂 Arrived to Bucharest around afternoon and  then took train to Brasov so our mentor Luci and Claudia has welcomed us warmly.  We went to office and to make some documents , you know.. signing  up and rest of things…   We have been taught how to get home and etc. I learned that I will stay with 3 guys in home ( Hopefully not forever 🙂 ) I unpacked my stuff but just a little bit.  And, all I remember that I was tired... Read More

Connections

I was thinking about the connections. You can meet with six persons a day, and finally, the people that you really connected with is the double that you expected… do you know why? Because the first person you found perhaps spoke about you with another person, and the chain of contacts who pronounced your name today is longer than you think. Connections can produce powerful effects, like the electricity making contact in a central point where there’re... Read More

Taming of the Shrew

You have known her since you were children. She is green, capricious, malicious. She is small, but she can annoy.  She is as hard as nails. She doesn’t care who she hurts. If you wouldn’t be careful she stings your fingers, hand, legs.  No, she isn’t a good girl !!! But she can be very useful for you. If you know, how to treat her. Urtica (lat.), nettle (en.), urzica (ro.),  pokrzywa (pl.) Since a long time people has believed that... Read More

Last Spring Tale (IV): Play

PLAY: perform, action, play. No matter how often one rewinds the cassette, CD or even your own life. Sooner or later it will be necessary to push Play. Of course, it will happen after a long time in state of Record, a wonderful stage for discovering new musical instruments and styles: some tangos, a lot of bachatas and too much bulerías. At this point, perhaps you will have to push Stop, maybe until you find a genuine waltz. This style is my favourite.... Read More

Spring Tales III: Rewind

In this world you can find people who live in state of Rewind almost permanently. Those specimens must have reset themselves too much, and due to this, they don’t know very well the reel where the sound of their existences should sound. They are not able to keeping long in the same disc, and however, their life sounds as a repetitive song. I think that is not cool to stay twisted excessively around the same melody, more if this song was released... Read More

Spring tales II: Reset

When you are born, your eyes are blinded. Step by step, the process as I call ocular descongestion starts. At first, pupils aren’t developed, even can’t recognize mummy’s face. Then, the child develops a special smell to that vanishing figure which every day feed him through a kind of spongy valve. But…once the baby is out of the mummy’s belly…the chain of natural evolution starts…and in this point there aren’t Pauses for avoiding... Read More

Spring Tales I: Pause

I still remember mi first class of Natural Sciences. The professor explained the evolutionary cycle inside natural ecosystems: born, grow, reproduce and death. Ok, it seems easy, but all those new concepts socked my inside. I couldn’t do nothing… I guess that the fact of being born inside a traditional religious family perhaps contrasted with my most scientific instincts. Certainty, I experienced these classes of Natural Science as great revolution.... Read More

On Saturdays…

…usually we have Romanian lessons. We live close to the office, so we are always late. There are too many strange and new things and people around us, on our way to the office, that it seems to be impossible to be on time. For example a lot of people with baskets, wal king out of the church, every single Saturday of Lent. Almost all of them in black clothes. We tried to guess who they were, what they had in the baskets, or for what were they... Read More

Dialogues along the Danube

–          Eh! tu …..Ce face? –          Me?…nothing, I’m not doing nothing special. –          Ah, no? –          No. –          Eh! ….Did you say something? –          Me?….No, I didn’t say nothing. –          Are you sure? I thought I heard something. –          I don’t know. Perhaps the sound of the tides.... Read More
