Friday Nov 5. Monday planned haul out

Written by Jack van Ommen on November 5th, 2010

That’s the latest news. The barge is still being loaded today. The weather turned very nice yesterday. Sunny and warm but cold nights, right now it is into the seventies and is to last all weekend.

I am becoming known around the town. Yesterday and today a radio interview with the local station was being broadcast. Camelia interpreted.  But today I am being outcast by the sad news that the countries favorite son, the poet Adrian Paunescu passed a way today. He inspired many young Romanians and many artists/performers got their start on his t.v. talent show in the sixties and seventies.

I took the below picture just outside of town on my way to the boat. There is something very unique and stark in the Romanian landscape here and in Calafat. I hope to see more of it beside the very southern borders.
