Monday’s Links for Curious People….Romania Edition


I don’t know what it is about Monday’s lately, but the last several weeks I’ve found myself unable to post anything on Monday’s. I’m like a traveling, blogging version of Garfield.

Yesterday I was on an 11 train ride from Budapest, Hungary to Sighisoara, Romania. Needless to say, the Romanian trains do not have wifi.

Sighisoara is a very picturesque town and is also famous for being the birthplace of one Vlad Dracul, aka Vlad the Impaler, aka Dracuala.

Technically, it is still Friday on the west coast of the US when I’m posting this, so I can feel a bit OK about myself. Anyway, here are some things to read from around the internet that those of you curious about the world might be interested in:

    Every time I log on, I always leave with another random destination on my wish list to visit. I never would have considered going to Romania, as the only thing I knew about the country is that they have a fantastic gymnastics program… Looks like there would be plenty to do and see!

    The US$ is dying and will continue to do so. Get into commodities or out of the deadbeat currency. Dr. Bernanke can’t just print cash forever and not pay the consequences. That said, the US almost died in 2008 so these 3 years have been kinda propped up.
