The jokes in Eastern Europe shared pretty much the same form — Kundera's wonderful novel The Joke, which talks about Czechoslovakia in the '60s and the '70s in which the entire society had become a joke. Nobody took anything seriously including the party leaders. Everybody told jokes, and the secret police spread them. So everybody was in on them, laughing, the whole thing was collapsing.

I have to say that the general mood was pretty upbeat, considering that there might have been a bomb nearby. I think everybody had the same thought as I did -- who would care to bomb Bucharest airport? One man handed out "Merci" chocolates that were clearly intended for someone waiting outside the terminal. Another man gave me a bottle of water for David. Children started playing with each other. People smiled.
