Site Announcement!

Yesterday was the big day! I found out where I'll be living for the next two years!

And my site is.....(drum roll pleeeeease)

Lugoj!!! It's a small city of about 50,000 in the west of Romania, just outside Transylvania, in the region known as the Banat. Its an old Hapsburg town, with lots of Bavarian architecture. I'll be teaching in a highschool that has a significant German-speaking population. I know very few details at this point. But, be assured that more details are to follow (I'll visit the city next week)...

Congratulations! We Google-world your site location, and it looks like you will love it there. There is a beautiful winding river and it seems that the mountains are not too far away. All things you were interested in exploring.
