|I finished this week quite tired. Friday, at work, I could hardly wait to get home and get some rest, which I did, after a short pit stop at Unirea with Cris, as we wanted to hang out and talk a little longer. As I felt the urge of getting out of the city but lacked the time, I suddenly thought of the next best thing that I’ve been planning for months. I looked at her smiling and said “Hey, would you like going to the Botanical Garden with me tomorrow morning?”. Knowing her and her busy plans for the next day, I expected a no. But I got a yes.
So Saturday morning I left with K as he was going to work, got of at Unirea and met her in Regie. We then went along to the Garden. This Garden is extremely close to the Journalism and Communication Sciences Faculty, my first faculty. I remember going there to take photos with my group for a photo lab. Hated the whole deal: one camera for about 8-10 students, one hour for all to take about two photos, and of course, perfection demanded although it was the first time we were given a digital camera…
It was different on Saturday…I came here to get away from the city, the car noises and to find myself in a cool, quiet place where I could let all the pressure gathered in the past few months go away…Small talk with Cristina, taking some leisure snapshots, most of them here, it was really paradise!
When we got out, we felt like we should keep on walking, which we did, to the University and then Unirii again, where we also had something to eat. We then split and went home. But on this second walk around the city, we ended up at an Annual Fair of Collectors.
We saw medals, stamps, old photos, old cards, old coins and bills, old jewelry mixed with new one, ancient-looking swards and guns, anything and everything. A good place to shop for something different, if you were looking for a different type of present, a great place to simply look at things you do not usually see. So I took some more photos.
