Sommer and Lindsey in Romania

Sommer and Lindsey are traveling to Romania for two weeks in summer 2009 to report on the status of orphanages, 20 years after the fall of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Their project is partially funded by a Meadows Exploration Award. Sommer ’08 graduated in December with degrees in journalism from Meadows School of the Arts and history from Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences. Lindsey is a senior marketing major in Cox School of Business and a photojournalist.

It is a small world after all

An update from Sommer:

As Lindsey and I speak to more people about our plans, it becomes clearer that a lot of people seem to have some sort of connection to Romania. Somebody’s neighbor adopted a Romanian. Somebody’s best friend is in the Peace Corp in Romania. Somebody’s mother is Romanian. Whatever the connection – we want to know.

So please post a comment and tell us what you know about Romania.

Lindsey and I are trying our best to be as prepared as possible, so please share your words of wisdom.
