When traveling to a new place for the first time, or trying to create a new life in a city that is foreign to you, the first thing you’ll try to do may be what brought you to this website in the first place. You are possibly, and probably seeking a group of people that are of “like mind”; people that share similar interests and characteristics with your self. These people will be expats or expatriates from another country (most likely your own), or they may be travelers here temporarily… or they may be groups of people that have already been assimilated in to this existing group of people. The one thing that we have noticed, and that you will notice also, is a little thing we’ll call the “alpha expat”. Surely you’re familiar with the “alpha” of the group, the one who knows all, sees all, hears all… you know… the lion king? Well there are a million of these alpha expats out there… not just in Bucharest, but everywhere. Now that we’ve tuned you in to this you’ll be looking out for it… you may even become one yourself! An alpha expat is one who has an answer for even the un-answerable questions. An alpha expat is someone knows the latest “secret” in the local community that nobody else is aware of. An alpha expat is someone who is always on top of the local “news” and knows the ins-and-outs of every piece of media propaganda being spread around. An alpha expat is the one with the business journals oozing from their briefcase pockets. An alpha expat is someone who puts a full-hearted attempt into improperly translating the local language. An alpha expat can always outdo you on a travel “experience” and drink you under the table at the local pubs… Are you an alpha expat?
