Csíkszereda Musings

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

Ageing

Posted by Andy Hockley on 3 March, 2008

On the day that I turned 42, Russia elected a president who is also 42. I grew up in a world in which the Russian (then Soviet) presidents were basically the oldest men in the world. Anyone remember Konstantin Chernenko for example? A man who seemed so old that he could barely appear on TV, and who proved to be just as frail by expiring soon after ascending to the role of leader. With these memories, being as old as the president of Russia is a little bit sobering. I think I’m going back to bed.
