I'm back in Romania after the winter break, and was greeted with a dull day. It brightened as we drove back from Cluj to Sighisoara, and I heard of the Polish airplane crash and the death of the Polish Prime Minister. Not over comforting, then, that I had bee flying with a Polish airline ( Wizz)
More importantly, on the flight with me were The Cheeky Girls. They of course come from Cluj originally.
Now in Romania, they are NOT known for one of them having been engaged to Lembit Opik. Indeed when I mentioned this to another passenger, they asked a) what nationality was he and b) what did he do. I explained he was a Lib-Dem MP, and the enquirer laughed.
"That" he said,"Is why I have never heard of him"
The reason they are known in Romania is because one of them ( I have no idea which one) supposedly had an affair with Tony Blair.
They are not known for their singing ability.
