Why flamenco?

A few years ago, I thought I would be unable to learn any flamenco step. It seemed too difficult, could not follow anything and my back and knees were hurting after my first flamenco initiation lesson. It turned out that the instructor was not not a good teacher. His dance skills were amazing but his …

Plutesc si zambesc

Acum catva timp simteam ca plutesc fara directie. Mare lucru nu s-a schimbat intre timp. Inca plutesc fara directie, inca nu am obiective clare sau vreo misiune anume, inca nu stiu incotro ma indrept. Insa de data asta nu ma mai tracasez atata ci doar ma bucur de moment. In loc de nori gri ploiosi …

Michalopoulos’ surrealistic customer care: The outraging story of a wedding ring found on the beautiful island of Zakynthos

Little did I know that morning that the trip to Zante town would conclude with my wedding ring. It was our second year we were back to Zakynthos island (Greece). We were so happy to be there, continuing our holiday from where we left it a year earlier. I don’t know why I started to …

Consultant sau contractor = resursa de aruncat la cerere sau la nevoie

Unele companii lucreaza cu multi consultanti sau contractori pe care ii angajeaza pe perioade determinate ca sa lucreze pe diverse proiecte (in general IT) unde au nevoie de resurse cu profile de lucru specializate. E si cazul uneia dintre companiile pentru care am lucrat. Am remarcat multe discrepante intre consultanti si angajati, consultantii primind uneori …

22 martie: a doua nunta. Chris cu lacrimi in ochi si Gaby cu inima in gat

Venise si ziua de sambata, 22 martie, ziua in care deveneam sot si sotie si in biserica si ne dadeam verighetele. Chris a dormit la hotel in noaptea de dinaintea nuntii, ca sa fim cat de cat in traditie. Acasa eu am ramas cu mamele. Dis-de-dimineata, am plecat cu mama spre coafor (caci ca sa …

Nu vin, nu dau la cadou! Contributia colegilor belgieni la cadoul de nunta.

Nunta la belgieni este pentru mine o controversa. Cu atat mai mult, cadoul pentru colegii care se casatoresc. Diferentele culturale sunt clare si ma tot frapeaza, desi dupa atatia ani, ar fi trebuit sa ma fi obisnuit. O colega de-a mea se casatoreste, si precum se practica in echipa i-am anuntat pe ceilalti colegi ca …

>A venit primavara!

>A venit primavara! Deja se simte! E mai mult soare, aud din ce in ce mai multe pasari cantand, natura gri pana mai ieri isi schimba incet-incet hainele si devine mai verde, mai colorata.De-abia astept caldura, culoarea, energia, sa incerc bicicleta care ma tot asteapta in garaj, sa ies mai des.A venit primavara!

>That long and challenging quest for a job in Brussels

>As many others, I started some time ago the race for another job. The recession didn't make it easy especially at the beginning. Brussels, although capital of Europe and home of many European headquarters, remains a small city (e.g. Bucharest is twice as bigger and has twice as more inhabitants) where jobs are scarce and …
