Friends (and Food) in Bucharest

Klaus parked a block from Casa Victor
The city is enjoying a lovely early summer.
Casa Victor, on Str, Emanoil Porumbaru
Today I spent in Bucharest where I had two memorable meals.  Lunch was ciorba de burta with Mihai Moroiu of the U.S.-Romanian Fulbright Commission at Casa Boiereasca, not far from the Commission offices in the Embassy District.  Then, following a few hours of actual academic writing, I was joined at dinner by my former student Alina Sime and her husband, Dragos Boeru.  This was my first chance to meet Dragos, whom I found to be a gracious and wickedly handsome devil, who shares Alina's penchant for jumping from perfectly functional airplanes.  Their son David stayed home with his nanny, so him I shall have to meet on a future date!

Alina and Dragoș

God bless Alina!  She called me "Uncle Duncan!"
