The US embassy in Bucharest organized a party where the guests watched the inauguration on TV. The Obama book (4) was a raffle prize. The cat, a resident of the American Cultural Center, was helped by a friend of mine into a pose.

An employee of the French-Romanian automotive company Dacia-Renault looks on at the end of a rally in support of a recently introduced government tax on imports of second hand cars in Mioveni, Romania. The company had to temporarily shut down its operations, due to low market demands at the end of last year and is most likely to halt production again.

Here are a few of my favourites from the story on the campaign of Mr. Paleologu, that will run in February's Esquire in Romania. Theodor Paleologu gave up his position as Romania's Ambassador to Denmark and Iceland to return to Bucharest and run for Parliament, in hope he could make a change in our politics. Some of his friends, however, consider he does not fit the profile of the Romanian politician, as Mr. Paleologu is well educated and polite. The story ended on the last day of the campaign. He won and is currently the Minister of Culture.
