Yale Strom: Visiting Old Friends in Iasi

Together with Cili and Cara, in their house in Iasi, Romania.

Yale published this photo on his Facebook wall just yesterday and an animated discussion followed. I can still hear the Bosnian Waltz and smell the burnt gebeks... was one of the remarks, and then came the explanation, technically, gebek is Yiddish for cracker - but Cili called her cookies, gebeks (cookies would be kikhlekh) -- she gave me a lesson and then we got so caught up in our four-language conversation we forgot about them... until we smelled the char...

Yale Strom will be in Romania some time in August this year.
