This evening we are off to Romania for three weeks, driving  from Munich through Hungary to Timişoara and staying there for a week or so. Apparently I’m doing a general GNOME talk at the local Timişoara LUG on Thursday, but I’ll need to borrow someone’s PC to actually make some slides, because I’ve been rushing to finish more important things before leaving.
I’ve learn a little Romanian over the last few weeks. Pimsleurs Romanian course only has 10 half-hour lessons, but it really helped to get the basics in to my head. Plus the Teach Yourself Romanian book and CDs, and Zsolt Czimbalmos’ Romanian audio (Creative Commons licensed). The Pimsleurs method is so effective that I am getting the Pimsleurs language-learning religion.
I’ll check email occasionally. If it’s urgent then you’ll find a way to contact me.
 Not my idea. Cars are a stupid waste of time and space. At least we’ll swap it for an authentic Dacia when we are there, built for Romanian roads.
