"Want to go back to communism? We'll send you to Cuba!" On itsfront page, Adevarul has commenced preparations for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the communist regime. To mark the launch of a series of articles entitled "The end of the Ceauşescus," the Bucharest daily has announced a photo essay competition. Readers are invited to visit the newspaper website and to upload a photo accompanied by a story dating from before 31 December 1989. The first prize in the "Return to communism" competition is a week for two in Havana. "Send us your pictures of the Golden Age, and we will send you back to communism," announces *Adevarul*. The daily also insists that this is not mere European communism, but "Tropical communism with palm trees and sun kissed beaches!"
