    Here's an interesting video explaining the geopolitics of Romania, particularly on the historical side and the economic development problems.

    Do you work for the Romanian tourism board? You should.

    I do my best to promote Romania to be fair, because I love my country and it has a lot of things to offer - and I tend to steer away from working in the public sphere. A very complicated thing to work with / for the government.

    Thank you for the appreciation Seamus.

    When the Irishman was released, the local Odeon theatre turned it a bit... theatrical.

    I've just seen this @Montmorency - unfortunately yes, this is a problem, and a significant one which I did wish the government did not turn the eye away from.

    I've been to multiple orphanages, working with different charities, and while some of them are in good shape (even public ones), some of them are in a deplorable state. Worst part of it all is not necessarily the building or the housing, or the equipment even - plenty of people are willing to donate - but the human resource part. Working as a caregiver is a strenous, difficult job and with the lack of funding it makes up for a significant issue of integrating those who have been abandoned.

    A nice, short summary of the history of Romania dating back to pretty much 8000 years ago.


    There are some minor issues with it - the Dacian / Thracian weapon is called a falx (not a flax) and also Vlad the Impaler ruled 3 different times from 1431 to 1477.


    Vlad the Impaler - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_the_Impaler

    Rhomphaia (cousin of the falx) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhomphaia
