Still standing... in Bucharest

So let's see... after arriving BACK in Bucharest around 1am, I was somehow still slightly surprised to walk through customs and out the door and see that I really and truly was in Romania again, only 20 hours after I'd left. I dragged myself to a cab and stared out the window with a combination of exhaustion and disbelief as we approached my street. Oh well, I'll get away next weekend.

Saturday morning I woke up to the familiar sounds of my neighborly construction workers and the gypsy lady outside doing her call for scrap metal. Ahh, home sweet home. I spent the weekend lazing around, working on a screenplay, reading, meeting friends here and there, running in the park, and trying to stay out of the heat and away from the mosquitos. I failed miserably at the last part.

Tomorrow and Wednesday I may not be able to post anything because I'll be out of the office on a cat food shoot. Woo hoo! But, as promised, some photos of the light show (aka electrical fire) that occured outside my window Thursday night. Like adventure? Come to Romania!

"Like adventure? Come to Romania! Okay, scratch that."
I guess the Romanian Tourism office is not hiring you anymore.

I should hope not! And neither is Google!

Guess you were supposed to be gaining more inspiration and materials for a screenplay last weekend. Will there be an airport travel scene and when will we know?

It was certainly a character-building experience. Both my character and other characters yet to come.
