#ViktorOrban had a speech that made waves last week. I watched it so you don't have to.A thread.The #Hungarian prime minister went to #Romania in the middle of the #Carpathians in a region where a sizable minority of around 1 million #Hungarians have lived for centuries. They /1
were sent by the #Empire as settlers & have been living isolated, hundreds of km from the border with #Hungary proper, maintaining their language, identity, surrounded by a majority of #Romanians. The choice of the location matters as the audience lives there (star)/2
in beautiful surroundings. #Hungary has been supporting this minority investing in #agriculture #schools loans, building new sports arenas while the #Romanian government has been tolerant of this encroachment on sovereignty to maintain #social #peace good relations /3

Another weekend #railway trip. Bulgaria unfortunately got cancelled due to the sudden PCR test requirement, but there are plenty of cool domestic trips possible in #Romania. On the line now between the oil city of Ploieşti and Sinaia. ImageImage
Departure from #Sinaia's lovely train station. A town well worth visiting for Peleş Castle and the mountains, but as I've been a gazillion times there before I'll pass on it for now and remain on board.
The #Carpathians are at their most majestic around Buşteni. Although the town itself isn't the prettiest, its a great starting point for hikes and has a cable car up the mountains. Image

Just Read a very nice article, whilst onboard #Emirates for a short trip to #Dubai about the 3 ships which were nearby when the #Titanic sunk and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare ..

A quick reading is recommended..

It was 7 miles away from Titanic, but since the crew had been hunting seals illegally &didn't want to be caught,they turned away from the Titanic

This ship represents those of us who are so busy in our own sin &lives that we can't recognize when someone else is in need

This ship was only 14 miles away from the Titanic,but because the conditions weren't favorable & it was dark,the crew convinced themselves that nothing was happening

This ship represents those of us who say I can't do anything now & wait until conditions r perfect
