Andrei Codrescu at amusement park

Eyes of Sibiu {format} 12:15 Andrei Codrescu & Larry Massett

Andrei returns to Romania, his homeland. "Look at the old lady looking out. Shes been looking out for three hundred years. And shes still curious. She looks like shes seen everyone: the Romans in their sandals, Germans in jackboots, gypsies with feet of silver, and the communists in their dialectical slippers; and pretty soon, the rollerblades will be coming. Shes not going anywhere." [transcript]
