While I was in Baia Mare I met M., whom I haven’t seen for two years. I also met A., whom I haven’t seen for three years. Our get-togethers were as wonderful as if we had seen each other every single day. I guess that along the way you find people who are very much like you and you form these special bonds that time and distance can’t break apart. No matter how rarely you see each other, it’s still special and you still feel that you are connected. I am amazed every time such a thing happens and I am extremely grateful for having such wonderful people in my life.

Today I met I. We know each other from the ugly communistic building we worked together. We started talking at a book release. I was convinced she was German. We discovered that we have many things in common and we made a ritual of having lunch together at work. Those were the best lunch breaks I’ve had!

Like many of the people I like, she too moved away. But it’s ok, cause she’s coming and going, living in Bucharest a couple of months and then moving again, and coming, and going. I love this nomadic aspect of her life and I have to admit that I envy her a bit for being so courageous.

Since I’ve started climbing I don’t feel the need to go out and see people. I talk and socialise at the gym and that’s more than enough for me. But from time to time it’s fantastic to talk more than trivial things, to have tea with someone that matters.

When I visited A. we talked till 4:30 in the morning. And on New Year’s Eve we went to bed at 5 because we still had so many things to discuss. It’s the same with other far-away friends: we write e-mails and we keep in touch and when we meet, we still feel that we don’t have enough time to catch up and just talk about everything. I think it’s a girls’ thing! :D

On a different note, Bucharest seems prettier since I’m back. I have such a good feeling about this year :)
