Someone, somewhere on Oct 14, 2019:
@gigi the fact that your family made bad choices (i.e., they are cretins from a redneck state unable to find mates in their own backyard) has no bearing whatsoever on Romania, so you may do well to spew your frustrations elsewhere. May I recommend opioids?

Buna ziua ma bucur tare mult ca orasul meu natal Iasi Romania, se afla pe loculo trei in Topul oraselor din lume cu un nivel de trai mai bun , datorita econi=omie crescute, forta de munca si rata somajului scazut datorita faptul ca tineri sa se poate angaja pe domeniile pe care au finalizat studiile si increderea deplina in anagajatoriii dand forta de munca si prosperitate.
Multumesc tare mult Primarului iasului , faptul ca a deschis proiectele europene pe anumite domeniii de infrastructura, educatie, sociale, medicale si alte domenii, si ca da incredere deplina fata de cetatenie ai Orasului natal in care ma aflu.
Multumesc tare mult de Dl primarului iasului Mihai Chirica si sa contiunue asa cu proiectele care au inceput aceesand fondurile europene nerambusabile, pentru a avea un oras demn de un trai bun .

#Gigi... sad to hear about your son.
As one who has traveled Romania extensively on business, your experience is not the norm.
The gypsies in Romania are not well regarded there among the other social classes as yes there are scams run by that sector of the population.
As for the other parts of the population, I met the love of my life there in Iasi. Of course there are always bumps in the road along life's way in relationships. However I found and still find that most of the people there are some of the kindest and most considerate in Eastern Europe. Much more friendly and trustworthy for example as compared to many I have met in other parts of Europe such as Kiev and Paris.

The internet and prepaid mobile tariffs is really cheap. With 30 RON you can get super fast internet (at least 100mbs). For 32-35 RON you can get prepaid with unlimited in Romania, about 3GB of mobile data or even more cool stuff.
