Today I discovered a blog by a fellow named Andy H. It appears he and I have dealt with similar topics. Here is a link to the post in his blog that caught my interest: Csíkszereda musings: A story.
Here is a link to an old post from "A Fulbright Year in Romania" that seems to me to be somewhat in parallel to Andy's musings.
I especially admire Andy H. for this line in his blog's heading: "I reserve the right to go off topic and talk about anything I damn well like."
Hang tough, Andy! I hope that we can meet one day, perhaps at Praid, for a salty conversation.
