On the Road to Babadag: Travels in the Other Europe

By Andrzej Stasiuk

Andrzej Stasiuk is a stressed and indefatigable vacationer. His trips take him from his local Poland to Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Albania, Moldova, and Ukraine. by means of automobile, teach, bus, ferry. To small cities and villages with unfamiliar-sounding but unusually evocative names. “The center of my Europe,” Stasiuk tells us, “beats in Sokolow, Podlaski, and in Husi, now not in Vienna.” 

Where did Moldova finish and Transylvania commence, he wonders as he's being pushed at breakneck velocity in an old Audi—loose wires placing from the dashboard—by a driving force in shorts and naked toes, a move swinging on his chest. In Comrat, a funeral procession strikes slowly down the most highway, the open coffin on a pickup truck, an outdated lady wearing black brushing away the flies above the face of the deceased. directly to Soroca, a baroque-Byzantine-Tatar-Turkish encampment, to fulfill Gypsies. And all of the strategy to Babadag, among the Baltic Coast and the Black Sea, the place Stasiuk sees his first minaret, “simple and serious, a pencil pointed on the sky.” 

A tremendous travel of Europe’s darkish underside—travel writing at its best possible.
