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.

Site update and new Twitter

An update from Lindsey on their site Romania Revisited:

If you’ve clicked on the Stories tab on our Web site recently, you might have noticed that we updated it. Now, you’ll find a quick rundown of the cities we visited with a short description of what we did when we were there and the people we interviewed. Check it out. You might find it interesting. Promise to post more entertaining stories (and maybe even a pic or two!) in the coming days.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. We have a new Twitter account set up just for this project! Follow us at Why didn’t we do this before we left? That’s a great question. I can’t believe that I didn’t think of it, being the Twitter lover that I am. I didn’t even come up with the great idea after we returned. That honor goes to Clayton, our magic Internet elf (a.k.a. webmaster). Thanks, Clayton! But my question is, why didn’t any of you smart people following us on our blog, Twitter and/or Facebook think of this?

Dinner calls.
