Cu monoclu la Sosea



Azi si ieri ca acum 60 de ani Bucurestiul respira un pic de aer. Aer de cand lumea buna mergea cu trasura si nu cu otomobilu' care nu se inventase prea de tot. Oameni cu joben si dame cu rochii luuungi, cu volane, subrete si madame, mustate pe oala, monoclu si tabachera, cizme de intendet. Astea toate se plimba prin centrul istoric inca si azi, ca si ieri, ca si...."ieri". E multa veselie de la fanfara care zice ca in colt la Mitropolie sau ca in Gradina Cismigiului. E lume buna care se saluta si venira si niste nemti cu nemtoaice, austrieci de la Viana, care se plimba si se minuneaza ce sarmant e Bucurestiul. Aseara, am tras o spaima vecina cu moartea de la niste nazbatii care faceau zgomot si luminau si se cam strica vraja retro, alivoar amuzament. Am zis ca mai ies la Sosea numai ziua, ca seara e cam...mojicie!

Acum m-as da cu trasura, as manca o placinta cu branza in colt la Capsa, dupe care as merge la Union, la comedii. Tu ce faci azi, Mito?

Mergi la Leonard Cohen?? Ce dracia mai e si aia, ca nu suna frantuzeste.

In orice caz, ne vedem acolo, daca e toata lumea buna. La bulivar, birjar!

I thought Leonard Cohen was from Montreal. Is he Canadian?

Next summer when I travel back to Romania, I will eat pie with cheese in Bucharest. Will you show me the city?

Canadian, yup. He was astonishing tonight, on his birthday, in Bucharest.
Of course I'll show you around the town. I know some cheese cake on the way to a good stroll... :)

Thanks, Ramona. I will look forward to it. I can't believe I read "cheesecake" as "pie with cheese." :-)
