De-ale capitalei

In caz de nevoie

Se intampla ca fix in noaptea de Revelion sa fim pe plaja Otres din Cambodgia (un fel de Vama Veche a lor), iar Radu sa inceapa sa dardaie intr-un hamac, cu febra 39,8. Cand ne-a aratat termometrul s-a facut brusc gol in jurul nostru, caci toti ceilalti turisti au fugit, gandindu-se la cine stie ce boala exotica contagioasa.  Am oprit un tuc-tuc si i-am cerut sa ne duca urgent la cel mai apropiat spital, cel din Sihanoukville. Un drum de 15 minute a durat aproximativ o ora, caci tuc-tucul isi facea cu greu loc prin multimea de oameni venita sa vada artificiile. Ne-am dat seama ca trecerea dintre ani s-a produs in timp ce noi eram in drum spre spital, asa ca ne-am urat un “hai la multi ani” fara prea mare entuziasm. Eram foarte ingrijorati.

EN: On New Year’s Eve we were at Otres beach in Cambodia (some kind of Vama Veche of their own), when Radu started shaking in a hammock, with a fever of 39,8. When he showed us the thermometer, all of the sudden it was empty all around us, because all the other tourists ran away, afraid of some mysterious exotic disease. We stopped a tuk-tuk and asked him to take us the nearest hospital, which was the one in Sihanoukville. A 15 minutes drive took approximately one hour, because the tuk-tuk could hardly pass through the crowd gathered to see the fireworks. We realized that we went from one year to the next while on our way to the hospital, so we wished each other, without any enthusiasm, a “Happy New Year”. We were very worried.

Recomandari de carti

La aceasta postare aveti ocazia sa o admirati pe Perdita proaspat iesita de la coafor (oh la la), dar si sa faceti recomandari de carti citite recent. Ar fi o postare la care ne-am putea intoarce mai multi pe viitor, atunci cand nu  vom sti ce roman sa alegem mai intai.

Toamna se numara copacii

Sunt foarte mandra de mine caci, datorita cererii facute catre primarie in luna mai, pe strada mea sunt acum 9 copaci noi si al zecelea salvat de la defrisare. Merg mai departe si lansez invitatia de a va alatura campaniei #CopaciidepeStradaMea.

 

EN: I am very proud of myself, because thanks to the request I made to the Mayor’s Office in May, there are now 9 new trees on my street and the tenth one is saved from being cut down. I am taking things further and inviting you to join the campaign #TheTreesOnMyStreet.

10 idei pentru ZEN acasa

Parca din ce in ce mai putin imi gasesc linistea si bucuria undeva in oras, la un restaurant sau club sau mai stiu eu ce. Si nu e de varsta, am avut dintotdeauna acest sentiment, doar ca parca se accentueaza. Sigur, ador calatoriile, dar nu traiesc doar calatorind. Viata mea se desfășoară cel mai mult in Bucuresti, de care ma leaga in primul rand job-ul si, desigur, casa. Iar casa mea este locul in care ma simt protejata, iubita, linistita. Asa ca, m-am gandit sa va scriu despre ce imi place si imi face bine sa fac acasa.

 

EN: I seem to have given up on finding my peace and joy somewhere out, at a restaurant or a club or whatever. And it has nothing to do with age, I have always had this feeling, but it seems to grow stronger. Of course, I love to travel, but I don’t live just travelling. My life is mostly in Bucharest, which I am connected to firstly by my job and, obviously, mu home. And my house is the ideal place for me to feel protected, loved, tranquil. So, I thought I should write to you about what I like to do at home.

Leonardo Da Vinci si sansa de a-i vedea inventiile

Ieri am trecut prin AFI Cotroceni si m-a surprins una dintre cele mai interesante expozitii pe care le-am vazut in ultima vreme: 44 de reproduceri dupa unele dintre cele mai cunoscute schite ale lui Leonardo da Vinci. Sigur, toata lumea stie de frumoasa Mona Lisa care locuieste acum la Luvru, insa genialitatea lui Da Vinci nu se rezuma la picturile sale, ci si la inventiile lui.

 

EN: Yesterday I stopped by AFI Cotroceni and I was surprised to see one of the most interesting exhibitions I have seen lately: 44 reproductions of some of the most known sketches of Leonardo da Vinci. Of course, everyone knows about the beautiful Mona Lisa who lives at the Louvre now, but Da Vinci’s genius doesn’t mean just his paintings, but also his inventions.  Read More
