A woman cleans her window next to an advertising poster

“romania”

I know little of Romania's upcoming elections, I'm just amused to see this woman juxtaposed with a campaign poster featuring some version of the "Most Interesting Man Alive." Although his sharp beard is grayed, the man appears on one side as the face of the future in a time of change. But the woman, elderly and unconcerned, reminds me that life goes on -- even after an election.
