I am not sure how many of you are familiar with this project, but I would like to share with you an audio series realized by the New York Times that talks about the history of slavery in the US. I found it to be such a good way of learning about this subject and not only.
So, if you have time, google it and listen to the podcasts. It will enlarge your horizons of knowledge as stories are not only about slavery but also about the origins of the American capitalist economy….music….
I thought it was a great resource so I am sharing it with you.
I’m really busy these days translating my book in my native language, and I couldn’t stop laughing while writing. I decided to entertain you with few Romanian expressions and their meanings, to give you a glimpse of how funny the Romanian language can be! Cheers!
