Csíkszereda Musings

My life in and around Csíkszereda, also known as Miercurea Ciuc.

From Székelyföld to Sheffield

Posted by Andy Hockley on 27 June, 2007

At opposite ends of Europe dramatically different weather conditions. Romania sweltered yesterday in +40° temperatures (not here as such, but it did get well above 30), with the news showing that in the sun in Bucharest it was over 60°; with news reporters, from all stations it seems, frying eggs on parked cars (can’t somebody find a new and creative way to illustrate the concept of really really fucking hot?); and with (again on all stations) high heeled shoes sinking into pavements.

Meanwhile back in the UK, it’s really raining. And I don’t mean it’s just raining in the traditional daily English sense, I mean raining in the apocalyptic noah’s ark sense (I may have mixed my biblical references there, but who really knows).

Here, for example, pictured yesterday, is a place in which I have spent many happy hours (and, let’s face it, a fair few miserable ones too):

For those unfamiliar with this most beautiful of locations (not that there should be that many people that applies to, since being unfamiliar with this place is a bit like being unfamiliar with the Taj Mahal), this is not some expensive water polo arena, but in fact, a football stadium. Or THE football stadium to be strictly accurate.

(I believe “Time to bring on the subs” is the humorous caption you need here)

    We all live in a yellow submarine? 🙂

    You should try using a sweeper system.
