Willy, das ist a delicious poem. Very visual, a bit lyrically, a bit funny as well! I don't think that the Romanians wear capes and Dracula masks (this is something invented) - here are other traditional events. I like also your description about the Scandinavian people and I must say I like your style: in July, when I was gone in Pecs, Hungary, I met a huge group of Norwegians from Oslo and for a month I was happy to find myself in their company, in their presence – and the girls were very blond and the boys as well, but all had something in common: the love for life, the optimism, the joy, the happiness, the sociable behaviour. Very beautiful and great-heartedness people!

I enjoyed reading it!

Best wishes,

 =  Of course it is invented, Marius...

...and I must take the blame. Nevertheless it IS a fact that
Richard Wagner invented those longhorn helmets for his operas.
These stereotypes are amusing, but they are also obstacles
when it comes to regarding the individual as such and not as
a Romanian or as a Norwegian. On the other hand stereotypes are so popular that it might be futile to fight them.
Cheers from Willy

A European in Canada celebrating "Scandinavian Day" - good fun! Great flow and description here. It reminds me of my own experiences when traveling abroad. It gave me a good chuckle. Good work!

Well, very well written, with humour and intelligence. I enjoyed reading it, too.
(Dracula mask? Maybe just some of his teeth?!) :D
