European Expansion – Welcome to Romania!

January 2, 2007 at 2:09 am | Posted in Eastern Europe, Romania | Leave a comment

Romania is now officially a member of the European Union, and as a Romanian, all I can say is this is one the best things I’ve heard about around the world in a while. While far from perfect, Europe’s attempt at unifying the various countries into one federation has been marvelous. I’m glad to see Europeans unifying so much. On my last trip to Europe, I met Italians in Norway, a Greek girl who lives in Amsterdam, and an American who lives in Munich, among many others. How wonderful. I don’t discount the problems that Europe still has to deal with, corruption, the influx of Muslims and the hard time Muslims and Europeans have at getting along, etc.

So, good work Romania. You’ve worked hard for this. Celebrate well. But don’t let your guard down.
