BUCHAREST IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

Post available in English and Romanian
O data pe an, orasul meu se umple de lumina si ofera imagini spectaculoase. Edilii orasului incearca sa compenseze cumva pentru multele probleme de care ne lovim. Pun o masca deasupra orasului si matura mizeria sub covor. Tactica frunctioneaza si cel putin o data pe an vedem Bucurestiul intr-o lumina diferita. Luminitele se vor stinge in curand, asa ca e pacat sa nu le vedeti si voi. Once a year, my hometown lights up and shines offering spectacular views. The town officials try to compensate for the many issues we are facing by putting on a mask and dusting the dirt under the rug. The thing is … this really works and each year we see this town in a better light (pun intended). So let me guide you through Bucharest before the pretty lights turn off.

SMALL CHRISTMAS GIFTS

Cadourile de Craciun sunt pentru multi o povara. E foarte greu sa alegi cadoul potrivit si pentru ca din punct de vedere financiar luna decembrie e una foarte incarcata. In afara de cadourile mai consistente si putin mai scumpe (pentru sot, parinti), in grupul nostru de prieteni Craciunul nu vine cu bataie de cap la pachet. Asta pentru ca incercam pe cat posibil sa nu ne facem viata grea si … gaura in buzunar. De ani buni, obisnuim sa ne oferim intre noi cateva cadouri simbolice. Iata cateva idei pe care le-am pus in practica pentru anul acesta: Lots of people have a hard time choosing Christmas gifts. It’s very hard to make a good choice, but also, financially the month of December comes along with many unplanned expenses. Besides the more expensive gifts for my close ones (husband and parents) in our friends’ group, we do not put so much pressure on ourselves for Christmas. We try not to make our life hard, we budget and try to keep it as simple as possible. Budgeting is the key for a more relaxing Christmas. We usually gift something symbolic. Here are a few ideas we tried this year:
  • Cercei cu tema/ Themed earrings:

  • Manusi, fulare sau ciorapi, toate cu tema de Craciun. Rechizite sau accesorii pentru birou cu tematica de iarna, sau poate o agenda sau o carte pe care stii sigur ca cineva drag si-o doreste/Gloves, scarfs or socks with a Christmas theme. Stationery with a winter theme, or maybe a planner or a book you know for sure someone wants:
