The reason why i am writing this post in English is because i want my English friends to also understand it. I was on the msn.com web site today and the “50 cheapest countries to live in” article caught my eye. I knew i was going to find my home country Romania among them, but i wanted to see how they would present us. That is when i got
pissed off mad.
You can find the article here and you will get redirected to the picture that represent Romania. Humor me and look at the other slides also. I don`t think you will find another country, no matter how poor or how many bad things you heard about it, that has a picture as bad as the one Romania has. Not even Bosnia, Pakistan, Albania or Moldova or any other included in that list. I will kindly ask you to come back from the article to my post and hear me out.
Now, i know my countries limitations and abouts. I am not saying it is the best country to live in, the most modern, best people, you get my drift. And we don`t have electricity or drainage in all the parts of the country. But guess what, so do other countries listed in that article. What i can certainly say is that Romania is a better country that the image from MSN travel suggests. They could have chosen a better picture for us as they could have chosen worse pictures for some of the other countries. But they didn`t and i am wondering why… What ever it was that was not nice MSN.
Here are a couple of pictures they could choose next time for Romania:
And some for the OTHER countries in the MSN article:
