We arrived in Cluj Napoca Saturday, March 19th, tired and jet lagged yet ambitiously eager to start our TEM lab journey. Cluj is a city in northwestern Romania and is the unofficial capital of the Transylvania region. It is a university town famous for its landmarks dating back to Saxon and Hungarian rule. Our team was met at the airport by Ionut Luca, our host and liason to our client. Ionut is a professor of math and statistics at University of Babes-Bolyai and was one of the key members in initiating the partnership between our client Megatitan and Thunderbird.
