A guy (exchange student): “Oh, you’re from Romania?”, with a grin on his face.
The guy: “That’s so cool! I have a friend who had a Romanian girlfriend and he says all Romanian girls are pretty!”
Me: “Well, that’s nice of him, but it’s not very accurate…”
The guy: “But you’re Romanian, you’re pretty, he was right!”
Me: “Thank you, still… You know what I mean. We’re just like any other country, we don’t grow models in our gardens…”
15 minutes kater, the group was being introduced to another exchange student (male). The guy I had been talking before introduced me first, with a huge smile on his face: “She’s from Romania!”
I say: “Nicoleta Luciu for president!” – and we’d have more visibility on a diplomatic level!
