Because I don’t have a car here in Bucharest, I end up spending a lot of time walking. (Some days, in fact, I feel like that’s *all* I do.)
While I do some intellectually-stimulating things (like practice speaking/thinking Romanian, listen to Romanian preachers), some spiritually-strengthening things (like listen to preaching form the U.S., pray in tongues, meditate on Scripture, talk with God), and some mind-numbing things (like get annoyed at the slow-walking people, complain about the weather, hurry), I also do one thing that really doesn’t fit into any category: I practice Tuvan overtone singing. 🙂
It’s probably one of the most difficult and useless skills I hope to develop while in Bucharest, but it really sounds awesome when it’s done right. (Trust me, it does!) Unfortunately, I don’t do it right. (Trust me, I don’t!) Fortunately, since I often walk along some pretty empty streets, I’m the only one who hears my pitiful attempts.
