What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Moieciu de Jos

How long have you lived there?

3 years

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

There are loads of sports and interest clubs throughout Romania that Romanians put a great deal of effort and time into. Personaly I joined the ranks of ski tourers in the Brasov area and was welcomed most warmly until I became part of the furniture. In the future I plan to join the voluntary Salvamont (mountain rescue) this is open to all I think that like hiking and repainting the trail signs, Get stuck in whatever you're into and I'm sure you'll find others likeminded and open hearted.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

You can have any religion you like as long as it's Orthodox Christian! I get some funy looks when I tell people I'm an Orthodox Celt, Viking and student of Zalmoxis, but it's people don't agree with me but they leave me too it, only dissagreeing in a tutting old busy body kind of way, they think I'm excentric, but they are certainly never rude.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Most of the younger generation leave our village due to lack of work, the only real options are start your own Tourist related business, go to Brasov for work, or work abroad and bring money back. As for starting a business I think there is massive opportunity that very few are making use of.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

In my village life revolves around construction work both home and abroad and subsistance farming. Also tourism through small guest house businesses. Its a rural existence based historically and culturally in agriculture. In my circle of Friends (mostly from Brasov) it's about family and exploring our mountains.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

You absolutely need to be speaking Romanian to some descent level or you'll struggle. This is the country side, not much English spoken or anything else. You will find some English spoken in Bran and far more commonly in Brasov.
