ROMANIA - Romania - Like many countries Romania is rich in history and alive with young, urban professionals!. I went there expecting to see gypsies and secretly wondering if I would meet up with Count Dracula. I saw what I thought was one gypsy, and I visited Bran Castle - part of the Dracula tradition. (I left before dark…just in case the Count might appear!)

The Palace of Culture in Bucharest hosts a magnificent art collection.

There is a lively art, music, and film culture. I was able to spend a day in the countryside where I saw some primitive villages and some magnificent scenery!

My work in Romania was with professionals who work in large, multinational corporations. They are required to make presentations in English. An interesting communication issue…My assignment was to help them sound more confident and assertive. After World War !!, Romania was ruled by the Soviet Union. In virtually every area of life there was total censorship. People could not and did not express opinions or disagreement. They withdrew! Sixty plus years later, the remnants of that repressive thinking still exists. The good news…Just as people who are slaves can learn to live as free people: people who were repressed and censored can learn to speak up, make their opinions known, and become perceived as knowledgable and confident people!
