“Exactly 1 month ago I was arriving in Brazil. So here it goes: 60 things I learned by living in Romania!
PS: Pay attention to what down here is a joke and what is not.
1 – Dracula is a vampire outside Romania.
2 – The same dude, Vlad Tepes, is a national hero.
3 – While vampires drink blood, the real red thing I loved to drink was Visinata.
4 – Another devilish drink is Tuica, Hungarians call it palinka, but it is the same thing.
5 – Most moldavians, muntenians and others have no idea what happens with Hungarians in Ardeal
6 – Romanians smoke an absurd amount of cigarettes. They smoke inside their houses, restaurants, and even shopping malls.
7 – Romanians always take of their shoes when entering home
8 – I believe Romanians prefer to keep their floor clean rather than their lungs.
“They have it all”
9 – Traveling in Romania is one of the best memories I have. Rivers, canyons, hills, mountains… They have it all
10 – While traveling in Romania you will go through Romanian roads. They are in good condition, but they have an absurd amount of curves.
11 – Also when traveling in Romania, you might want to pee. But worry not; there are so many houses by the side of the roads that it’s easier to end up in a bathroom than behind some bushes.
12 – Maramures is a happy place. Happy people, happy costumes, happy collors, even happy cemetery
13 – The only thing that isn’t happy in Maramures are shepherd dogs. They are not happy. They don’t like you. Run.
