Several weeks ago I was lucky enough to sit down with the well-known Gagauzian artist Dmitri Sevastin. I got his thoughts on his friend Dmitri Kara Choban, what political autonomy means for the Gagauz and what he wants to do in the future. I made this video, you can watch it. As always, stay tuned to the very end for a very special message for America. Also, you may recognize the accordionist from previous videos such as “one hand version of Katiusha with an 8 year old girl.” Enjoy. XOXO, Adam
What’s that? Two posts in one сутки? Yeah, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Every year the Fulbright program runs a mid-term enrichment seminar for all of the student researchers from the various countries of Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Last year it was in Sofia, this year? Thessaloniki, Greece. I certainly wasn’t going to turn down an all-expenses paid trip to Greece (can you blame me?). Long story short, I went to Thessaloniki and met my
comrades in arms colleagues and had a great few days living through the hell of captivity courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer a wonderful experience meeting and connecting with lots of wonderful people (see picture below).
Long story short again? I went to Athens, I got tear gassed. I was hosted by the American School of Classical Studies (major dap) and was given a world-class tour of all of the sites of Athens (major respect). I took some photos, here they are:
Stay tuned for the “7 Wonders of Gagauzia.”
I have now officially visited all the three cities of Gagauzia; Comrat, Vulcanesti and Ceadir-Lunga. I went two days ago, I took some pictures. That is all. Don’t tell Comrat but I think I prefer the other two over my beloved Comrat.
– I went to Greece for a Fulbright conference in Thessaloniki. Then I went to Athens. I’d like to thank everyone who pays their taxes. I’ll post some photos later.
– Had a great time celebrating Easter in a local village. At the church at 12 A.M. whisky at 10 A.M. I’ll try to write more about that later.
– I got invited to a wedding. I will do my best to not sully Indiana’s well-deserved reputation as the breeding ground of fine dancers.
– I’m busy.
