Maybe you can go home again?
That's what several of our foreign friends and acquaintances in Spain are hoping, such as Rumanians who may have had some other profession but in Spain were working in the once-booming construction industry. See As Jobs Die, Europe’s Migrants Head Home in yesterday's NYT. But "home" isn't what it used to be, either. There will be lots of stories to tell, of kids pulled out of school, repatriated and having to function in a language they´re no longer used to (or maybe never learned beyond talking with their mothers), of marriages in trouble because of new economic stresses, and lots more. Maybe the only upside of this crisis is that it is sure to enrich Rumanian (and Lithuanian and other eastern countries') literature.
