Romania II

See, when I went to the Olympics in '76, the gymnastics people knew that I was good, but everybody else, after I won, everybody was like, 'Where's she coming from? Who is she? What is Romania?'

Spending some time in Romania for Art Thursday:

Great selection of Romanian art (even in the last black and white photo, you can "feel" the colors in the bags).

Can't help but think there's quite a story behind Cetatea Oradea-1. A broken heart, perhaps?

And speaking of stories, these people make sure you know about who is buried there.

My favorite piece, though, is the window (Nagyvárad - Saspalota üvegmozaikja). Wow.

I was instantly drawn to the gigantic rock sculpture. Wow!
