Shock in the Parliament of Romania (7 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Pictures 27 Dec 2010   / 7329 views

Last Thursday was the most shocking day for the Parliament of Romania. The session was overshadowed by TV engineer, the father of two children Adrian Sobaru who decided to jump from 7-meters-high balcony in protest over government budget cuts that had affected his family. He was wearing “you-killed-our-children’s-future” t-shirt, but luckily his injures weren’t life–threatening. When he was taken out on a stretcher to the emergency, Adrian continued shouting the word “feedom”.

The World's Oldest Mother Dreams about Another Child (5 pics)

Posted in Pictures 16 Nov 2010   / 7250 views

Seeing Adriana Iliescu and her 5-year-old daughter Eliza walking hand in hand, you are more likely to believe that they are a great grandparent and a granddaughter. Adriana, a writer from Romania, delivered Eliza at the age of 66, and she is 72 now. She became the oldest mother in the world in 2005 thanks to IVF.

People call Adriana granny for fun, but she got used to it. And what would you say if a 72-year-old woman delivers another child?

Welcome to Romania. Part 2 (57 pics+1 video)

Posted by sym in Pictures 9 Jun 2009   / 21836 views

Yesterday's post “Welcome to Romania” has raised a wave of discontent among our visitors from Romania. They wrote angry comments and letters and requests to refute, modify and even remove the post.
We decided not to do so, but simply to explain it.
First. We didn’t make this post by choosing a picture by picture aiming to find the “ugliest” photos. We have just republished a very old collection of pictures, which is already more than 2 years old and which has long ago been around the entire internet and was published on every second site.
Second. We did not want to offend anyone. Izismile is created for other purposes. Do not take everything so personally. If these photos exist and are all over the internet, it means that they have the right to exist on our website too. Plus, everybody knows that there are bad and good things in each country. But sometimes, it’s better to look at bad things with irony and a smile.
Third. This is not the first or the only compilation of this kind.
We already have collections about Russia and Africa.
Fourth. We have no doubt that Romania is a wonderful and beautiful country with nice and kind people.

That is what one of the visitors wrote us. I quote: "I am a big fan of your website...i always check the pics you post every morning before going to work while i drink my coffee. I think they're all amazing. Today when i checked the website i felt really offended because of the pics you posted from Romania. Although they are old and cost you alot like you said, you managed to make me and probably some other Romanian people really sad. The pictures do not reverberate how really Romania is. I hope people who check your website will not get a wrong idea about my country. It's not like the pictures shows. Your thread should have been named gipsies in Romania not welcome to Romania. I'm writing this e-mail in hope that you will find other pics to post there and show the world how beautiful Romania is..You just let some pics with gipsies to speak for themselves about how my country is...It's really wrong and it makes me really angry...Maybe you should take a look at the links below..."

Well, for everyone who wants to learn more about Romania, we have gathered the second part of photographs which gives a glimpse of the country from another angle.

All the pictures were taken just before Romania got into the European Union.
Nothing more to say ... The pictures speak for themselves.
