Because I’m linguistically challenged, I managed to mangle quite a few Romanian words during my visit there with Heifer. La revedere (or goodbye) was one of the worst, because invariably, I’d think I had a firm grasp on the word, only to lose my courage midway through and simply garble out something like “Lareverrrrrraaah.” So when I saw this sign as I was leaving the adorable town of Belin outside Brasov, I leapt at the chance to finally get the word right.
As this is my last post on Romania (I leave for Appalachia tomorrow), I’m feeling kind of sad — so I figured I’d bid you La Revedere with some of my favorite shots from this beautiful country.
To all my friends in Romania, la revedere .. and Appalachia, here I come!
Beautiful! I hope you get to return someday 🙂
