Long awaited adventure

Every year the Bucharest City Hall has a mission: Christmas and New Year’s light decorations better than last year. This year, the lights were plugged in on December 1st, Romania’s National Day. As last week I had this terrible cold and the first three days of this week have been totally hectic and awful, it was only today that I have finally got my walk to see them.

I met Cris to get some reading material for the final exam and to catch up, as we hadn’t seen each other in a while. We also ran into another Uni colleague and I also had the surprise to bump into an ex high-school colleagues. She looked great, was happy to see me and filled me in on last weekend’s meeting with high-school colleagues (I was in Bucharest at the time, working) and she said there would definitely be a next time.

So I got to see the show, got some clumsy pictures of it :), see more of them here, and then got back in time to post this and go on with my license paper! Enjoy

    Romania's National Day is only a day before UAE. This year the lights & fireworks were a bit toned down because they are still unofficially in mourning for the former ruler(Sheikh Zayed) who was very popular. But usually they are spectacular.

    Quite a few Romanians here btw but I haven't heard of any special National Day celebrations. Some communities have cultural exhibitions & events or parties on their National Day - which are fun to go to if they're open to the public. The Russians do that. And the Indians. You should tell your embassy to get a move on.:)

    Anyway glad you're over your cold & getting things done again.

    I don't know exactly how to contact the emabassy there, but I'll try to find some form of contact. I know there are quite a lot of Romanians in UAE, but well, having a community is harder than just staying there, pretending you are the only one. :D
