Bonjour, how are you? Today we will talk about the 20th edition of the Gaudeamus International Book Fair held in the Central Pavilion of Romexpo Exhibiton Centre, a very complex cultural event which gathers together Romanian and foreign publishers ( this year the Guests of Honour at Gaudeamus are the Nordic Countries: Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Denmark), cultural institutes and centres, publishing and printing houses ( Humanitas, Polirom, Rao, Litera, Curtea Veche etc), educational institutions ( Academia Romana, Academia de Studii Economice, Oxford University Press), bookstores, libraries. But before we go on, let me tell something about the concept. Every year in Bucharest, there are two fairs dedicated to this cultural field: The Bookfest Fair and The Gaudeamus International Book & Education Fair the difference between the two being given by the fact that one is organized by the National Theatre (TNB) and the latter by Radio Romania since 1994. Also, the idea of a book exhibiton and a literary café at the same time, creates a cosy and friendly atmosphere where the pragmatic dimension of the intercultural exchange is refined throught the feelings.
As for me, as a philology graduate, this was a very pleasant and invigorating experience where I had the chance to meet and listen to beautiful people, see good books and discover hidden treasures on the shelves.
Have a lovely Saturday!

Hello, how are you today? Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but the past two weeks were a bit hectic for me (due to some personal problems and college stuff) and basically I had no time to publish the post I was talking about on Instagram which was supposed to be a nostalgic return to the days when I used to be a long haired girl ( now when I have a bob haircut I kinda miss this status). Since I was a child my hair was long and naturally straight and even if I wanted so much this short and edgy hairdo, now when I look at the old photos where my hair was long I think I have that feeling of craving for something which is slightly impossible ( because physically I have to wait until it will grow back). So, here you have a bunch of photos taken in June by a friend and former colleague of mine, Mcrtici, who happens to be a good photographer too. Hope you like them and hear you soon!
