Once a Moroccan guy said to a Romanian guy : Romania is where the Heaven is! You have water, green trees and women.  Well, after last weekend and a trip in the Carpathians I have to admit that yes, Romania is a piece of Heaven.

For the last few months,  I’ve started spending most of my weekends in Sibiu and discover step by step its beauties. Situated right in the middle of Romania, Sibiu is a city of about 150 000 inhabitants, European Cultural Capital in 2007 and now, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful and well preserved cities in the country.

Last weekend I finally managed to visit The Village Museum in Sibiu. Located in the ‘Dumbrava Sibiului’ National Rezervation, the Village Museum is one of the biggest in Europe, with over 300 buildings and 16 000 traditional objects. Very easy to get to (by bus from Sibiu you get there in about 20 minutes), it’s a great place to spend a day in the middle of the nature and surrounded by Romanian traditions (and all this for only 4 EUR entry fee).

Since I really enjoyed watching ‘Adam’s Apples’ and ‘Flickering Lights’ , last night I decided to watch another Anders Thomas Jensen movie, called The Green Butchers. It was a good movie, but I can’t say I liked it as much as I liked the other two.

For the past 6 days I’ve been wondering aimlessly (more or less) on the streets of Lisbon. I planned this journey together with my best friend (Petru) at the beginning of this year. The main reason we wanted to go there, was because we really wanted to see Radiohead. Their concert was part of a 3 days festival which has been held in Lisbon for the past 6 years. But we’ll get to that soon. Patience!

I just finished reading another Murakami book. This time it was Sputnik Sweetheart. Definitely the Haruki Murakami style this time as well.

It’s a book about love, about friendship and relationships, but it’s also, a book where abnormal things happen, where people double themselves and live their lives from different perspectives.

Being in my ‘watching Nordic movies’ period, I saw another great one a few days ago. This time is a new director, Petter Næss, a Norvegian director with few movies so far, but really worth checking out.
