Luxembourg Waffle - Ep. 5

Mariana Florea

In this episode recorded at Novotel, the president of "The Network", Luxembourg’s oldest international business women’s association, tells us about her own struggle to fit in almost 23 years ago, when she had to find her way in the Grand Duchy while being pregnant. Laura and Teo also talk politics and elections with the outspoken advocate of citizen participation, while confronting her with some hearty Luxembourgish expressions and stereotypical claims about her native country of Romania. One key learning right away: When it's time to fast, Romanians don't mess around.
