The Tulips Symphony is a yearly event that takes place in Pitesti. You can read more about it and see a few snapshots of past editions here
. This year, the event started on Friday, March 20, and lasted until Sunday. We were there on Saturday to celebrate the event.
Usually, waking up at 9 am is not a big problem for anyone. Well, given the fact that we went to bed at 4 am, the situation was not what you could call a normal one. Ryan
and his friend Iulia (aka Olive) had come to visit us on Friday afternoon and we took them clubbing. It was a great night, but waking up the next morning did become just a little difficult. Well, we managed it eventually, picked up Cristinica
on the way (she has already posted some photos), and one hour and a half later we were in Pitesti.
First we stopped by Silviana's place. Her mother prepared something to eat, then coffee and a great cake that I could not stop eating. A half an hour later, we got to Cristinica's place. Her mom had also cooked for us. So we started meal number two: steak, fries, pickles and salad. Then ice-cream. I only watched the others eat...But could not resist the coffee with cream that was next on the menu. So when we left to actually go see the symphony, we were all pretty much feeling like stuffed turkeys.
We got to the central area of the town and that's when Ryan and I turned into more than human beings. We had some weird devices attached to us that made us so much better! Yes, we were taking photos every five seconds :) We saw beautiful flowers everywhere! Tulips, lots of them, but also roses, orchids and cactus and any other flower you could dream of.
After all that walking we stopped for a quick drink and met some of Silviana's friends. At about 8 we were on our way back to Bucharest. We picked up D when arriving and went to the Plaza mall for some more food. Seasoned with conversations and drinks. I have to say I could hardly move when I got home!
Photos soon to come!
