the place where the sky is always grey or how blogs and wikis are better for you than newspapers
European newspapers would like you to think that …
there is a place where the sky is always grey.
‘ Corruption: l'UE épingle la Roumanie’ Le Figaro (FR) ‘ Agony of children left behind in Romania’ Daily Mail (UK) ‘ A flood of 350,000 skilled workers is expected to leave Romania for the UK.’ The Sun (UK) ‘ Dall' orfanotrofio in Romania alla prostituzione’ La Repubblica (IT) Is the sky always grey in Romania?
no wonder I can see the clouds gathering in your mind …
and that you imagine Romania to be like this.
but what the journalists aren’t showing you …
and what you do find on blogs, wikis, travel sites and the likes of Flickr is …
the blue sky!

ooh, and the atmospheric scientists (a.k.a. meteorologists) talk of 210 sunny days per year in Romania
although usually I don’t really trust them, they do have a point here.
