After a hectic day yesterday, I got the visa, flew to Bucharest, attended the welcome party and now I am getting ready for the Forum to start with a little hangover….Well, a clerk in the consulate makes such a difference. Because Mihaela wanted my try again, I went back to consulate yesterday and they issued the visa in a few hours… Funny… Anyway,
More to tell soon but let me note that I finally met with Onnik Krikorian with whom I have been in touch for more than two years and we finally met offline. A funny, easy going and resourceful blogger/journalist.
