    One of my teachers came from Romania - as far as I know. ;)

    And they are good at the Olympic Games, but never had the Olympic Games. Or do I mix something up? ?[face_plain]

    Part of it used to be in Austria-Hungary, it's in Eastern Europe above Bulgaria and southeast of Ukraine. It used to be a communist nation. It also is one of the many nations that supported the War on Iraq. Also the "War Between the States" movie, "Cold Mountain" was filmed there.

    I know very little, everyting i know is that it is a low life condition country so much that there are many romenia ppl that came here to Portugal (that isn't very high condition also when compared to other european countries, i must say. Weak sallary). They are in 4th place in portugal imigrants nacionality. (preceded by 1º brasilians, 2º Ucranians, 3º Moldavians) But i don't know any romenian personally, neither trough friends or workplace.

    Nice place. Spent 4 years visiting it (or a month in total actually living there) working on a USA funded (they are nice people in the US, really!!) project to help street children (mostly Roma gypsies).

    People are fantastic and the girls, when attractive, are extremely attractive. Teeth can be a bit iffy at times.

    Was there when Romania beat England in World Cup 98 and again in Euro 2000 when England were again beaten by Romania. Ive never seen such celebrations. Mad as fish, all of them.

    Country side is nice, if unkempt and in the central part you often see a sports car overtaking a horse & cart.

    And can I just say FRUTTI FRESH!!!

    hey there, romanians: could you please tell me something about your traditional food? I am a vegetarian and sometimes it is pretty hard to get any vegetarian food in restaurants in some countries. how about in romania? are there a lot of vegetarians? thanks :)

    Its getting better, but the last time I went Vegetarian menu still included meat.

    ie you ask for a Salad, meat is included. SO you have to tell the waiter that you want no meat in your salad.

    One of the best specialities is cabbage rolls. Which is sort of minced pork wrapped in cabbage and boiled. Sounds horrible, smells horrible but tastes great and keeps Romanians warm during their harsh winter months.

    Largely the Vegetarian approach isnt understood. Its like getting into an argument on evolution or indeed dinosaurs. Facinating.

    well, thanks for the info. i am not sure how we will handle the food part on our excursion. it depends on how the Uni of Bucaresti (sp?) is planning our trip. if we stay in hotels/hostels etc. we'll probably eat there at night. if we stay in Uni dorms, schools etc we'll probably stop at stores to get our own stuff... either way, I guess I will get a lot of canned food and other things that stay eatable for a long time (instant soups), once I get the chance to go to a store. that way I'll have things to eat if there are no veggi things around in a rerstaurant.

    why is there a discussion about vegetarianism and dinosaurs?!?


    --> "Come on you boys in Brown, come on you boys in brown, come on you boys, come on you boys in brown"

    Exactly :D tomorrow is this season' s last home match.

    "Que sera, sera
    What ever will be will be
    The Champions of Germany
    FC ST. PAULI..." ;)

    if you ask for vegetarian food you'll get it. At least in my city Arad. Don't worry: Romania is not Mars, you don;t have to go with food rations like SEALS. Our traditional food is very good. If you know what to ask for. Of course there are lots of people who eat meat, remeber we came from the RED era just a few years ago. In those times you ate what you had.

    But you'll be surprised about a few thing concerning Romania: the people are very warm, the girls are the MOST beautiful, and many other nice things. Of course there are bad things but let's be honest even USA has their homeless and they are many more than in Romania. But who talks about them, when it's easier to talk about a neighbor than about yourself...
