Casa Memoriala Nicolae Ceausescu (The Memorial House of Nicolae Ceausescu)
This is the place where Nicolae Ceausescu was born and educated.
The place hasn't been altered or modified. It can easily be confused with a Romanian (National) Village Museum house.
The interior of the house consists of two small rooms ornanted with traditional objects as if to keep Ceausescu's spirit alive, to celebrate the Romanian way of life from the beginning of the XXth century.
just like yesterday -
historical place unchanged,
In front of the house a statue of the former dictator has been added just a few years ago. Till then, there was nothing letting the passers-by know they're sitting in front of a place that shaped a country leader.
I contemplate the watch guard:
statue from our past
I'm taken aback -
I watch what he might have watched,
I sit where he sat
