I was in Mogosoaia today, to get the car fixed. (If you're familiar with the area and wondering why I go so far out of town... well, the repair shop there is fast, cheap, reliable and German.) On my way back, I saw something that wouldn't be remarkable at all in the US, quite remarkable in Germany and I've never seen it in Romania so far. Have a look:
I know what you're thinking. A truck, so what? Well, have a closer look at the printing on the outside:
I looked up the company, Transallianz GmbH. It's a German freight shipping company located in Neu-Ulm in Southern Germany. Transallianz has subsidiaries in Romania, namely in Timisoara and Bucharest. Neither the homepage nor any googling revealed what this slogan is all about, though. The homepage is as plain as can be, with no reference to anything Christian or religious. The Romanian caption is from Philippians 4:13 - "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." That's a pretty appropriate slogan for a moving company, eh? I still wonder about the story behind this truck. There's gotta be one.
