Fishermen

When I saw this fishing boat on the Black Sea it reminded me of another fishing boat I encountered in my Indian travel half a year ago: two fishing boats, two fishermen encampments, worlds apart still the same trade.

Anti-corruption

People in the streets are protesting against the rogue communist government, but this is not all, some others are out to protest against the general corruption (the two are related but not completely the same). So a few artists meet in front of the Peasant Museum in Bucharest with a set of self-made puppets representing the “corrupts” which all of us have to support, walked them on the street and then treated them with a beer.

Post-referendum

The referendum held by the communist coalition led by the prime-minister Victor Ponta and his fellow senator Crin Antonescu, now interim president, failed, they didn’t succeed to get the majority needed to dismiss the democratically elected president Traian Basescu so their coup d’etat failed at least partially. Now people are in the streets calling those too to do the moral thing and resign, even if this is very unlikely, to say the least.
