The book of forgotten stories / Cartea povestilor uitate

08 Jul


Travels weave stories, sometimes way too many that if not laid on paper quickly are getting lost in the creases of the mind from where they may stubbornly refuse to come out. But sometime new events trigger memories and force the old happenings out. We gathered lots of stories during our many travels and we finally were able to put just a fraction of them on paper and gather them in a book.
This is the good news; the bad news for you who read this part of the text is that for the moment the book is available only in Romanian, but we hope to have it published in English sometimes soon.

In the volume are gathered travel adventures and experiences that we had in many years from India to Cuba. From religious pilgrimages in Tibet on the Himalaya heights to the surrealist landscape of the American south-west; from the Peruvian altiplano that Inca used to build their empire to the Kuna Indians forgotten on the Caribbean’s atolls or the ones from the Embera tribes living their life as the way they were born on Chagres River; from an India frozen in time to a museum-like Cuba, impeccably preserved by the American embargo. Most of these experiences delved in a world outside of the beaten path, little exposed to the tourist routes. But the described experiences are not related only to the places and people we visited but describe also the shock of the westerner less exposed to vary ways of life so different from the world in which he regularly  lives.

You can order a copy of this book, yes only in Romanian for the moment, as follows:

Calatoriile tes povesti, uneori chiar foarte multe pe care daca nu le asterni pe hartie repede se ascund in cutele mintii de unde refuza cu incapatanare sa iasa. Dar uneori noi evenimente declanseaza memorii si forteaza vechile povesti sa iasa la suprafata. Am adunat multe povesti pe drumurile pe care am bananait prin lume si intr-un final am reusit sa punem in paginile acestei carti o mica fractiune dintre ele.

In acesta carte sunt reunite aventuri si experiente de calatorie avute de-a lungul anilor din India pana in Cuba. De la pelerinajele religioase din Tibet pe inaltimile Himalaiei la peisajele suprarealiste ale desertului american din statele din sud-vest. Din inaltimile altiplanoului peruvian pe care Inca si-au construit imperiul la indienii kuna uitati pe atolurile din marea Caraibelor sau a celor din triburile Embera care-si duc viata asa cum i-a nascut natura pe malurile raului Chagres. De la o Indie incremenita in istorie la o Cuba, ca un muzeu viu pastrata asa de embargoul american. Majoritatea acestor experiente au incercat sa descopere o lume in afara rutelor turistice obisnuite, o lume care era putin expusa turismului de masa. Dar experientele nu erau numai ai celor pe care-i vizitam ci descriu socul vesticului care este mai putin expus la un astfel de mod de viata complet diferit fata de lumea organizata in care traieste.

Cartea este disponibila deocamdata numai in limba romana si se poate comanda in felul urmator:
