Sunny Shiny Sunday

This Sunday I remembered how hard is to bring together some people even if your goal is a funny go out in a park. Everyone is coming with their own excuses, problems, stuff to do, impossibles hours to meet and so on. I can't even imagine what it takes to organize an event with five hundred or one thousand people.
I was happy to make that happen yesterday, even my goals weren't fully accomplish. We had a nice afternoon in the beautiful Herastrau Park, full with all kind of people, from little babies to adults who came together for a breathe of fresh air, a pleasant walk or a good reason for talk with each other. We also had the chance to stop for a minute to listen the actors from Masca Theater singing some traditional songs of different cultures from the world. I was lucky to hear my favorite song from the Russian culture, Calinca, malinca maia. After we sit on the green grass for almost an hour and walk on the shaded alley of the park we had the time and the inspiration to organize a short trip to Sighisoara for the next weekend. So long there![slideshow]

We played with fire at Eurovision and burned the podium

Saturday, 10 o'clock pm. To late to watch a long but good movie that we like usually to watch. But, hey we forgot that tonight is the Eurovision finale. The bad part of it is that ours Paula & Ovi are on the nineteen position for singing. But that doesn't matter, at least not for me. I intend to stay awake to the end of these show and to support our singers. Last year, i transformed my room into a dance ring especially for me throughout all the contest. This year I haven't the right mood for repet this experience so I would rather stay quiet listening to the 25 of Europe's best songs at this time. the fact that ours contestants will sing so late, submit me to the test of seeing at least another four good songs until the romanian reprezentation. I am amused by the representatives of Spain and like a bonus that guy from the audience who got on the stage during theirs funny "Algo pequienito". I like the boy from Belgium who plays about him and his guitar, a song a little bit dusty or too common in my boyfriend's opinion. I explain him that simple , retro sound is in trends right now and he will see this when this boy will take our place on podium, thing that happened during the votes count. It amazes me very pleasantly the Ireland representative with her voice, strong and sweet at the same time, but also the Turkish boys with their girl-robots.

It's coming the turn for ours beautiful and talented Romanians to play with the fair, singing "Playing with fire" and to burn the scene down. Paula seems very sexy at that piano.I would give them more than 12 points.
Together we feel that this is the winning song when we listen the young girl from Germany. me because I feel it very trendy and sounds same fresh as Avril Lavigne. him because he thinks that the song is somehow different from the others, it has his own rhythm.
I tend to change my mind after we had listen the Denmark representatives, with a very good staging and whose lyrics have stayed in my mind for some long time after...

"In a moment like this
Wanna know, wanna know,
Wanna know what you're looking for
Wanna know, wanna know,
Wanna know if you'll ask for more"
It comes the most intense moment of the evening. Surprisingly we both stood up at until this late hour.We begin to make assumptions based on geopolitical criterion. We can't believe how Romania is playing with the 5th and 6th position of the podium, and when he gets the 3 position I wonder "I see well or are we on the podium?" I kind do not believe it and expect to enter one more country to communicate theirs results and overthrow us.
I love the podium, with that dizzy kid from Germany who get afraid to play in the end because of his emotions on the top, the Turks with theirs rhythm, with that exuberant energy and their funny robogirls, and finally on the 3rd position on the podium our beautiful and talented Romanians who managed to overthrow voices, spectacular scenarios, nice apricot from Armenia and beautiful European woman with very good voices.

Congratulation once again.

Words sometimes hurts

In this morning something hurt me. And that something were some bad but true words.But what did hurt me much was that these words came from a very close person. I thought that he'll never say something like this to me, even he was right. Now I think that he don't knows me enough, he don't knows or don't want to accept me like I am. By that behavior I am tempted to do some things that may hurt not only us but other people. I don't know how I will work out these situation but I still hope for a happy end.

A short trip to Poenari fortress in the day when Romanians celebrates the 1st May, known as the Day of work

Situated on the top of Fagarasi Mountains,The Poenari Castle is one of the most admired landmark from Romania. Some of the reasons are that it is surrounded by a magnificent landscape made by the Vidraru dam water and the beautiful peaks of Fagaras.Also it is situated near an other very beautiful place we can see in Romania and I'm talking here about the Transfagarasan.
I was very skeptical to go there since I've heard that I have to climb 1480 stairs until I'll be able to enjoy the view, but finally I must confess that I was pleasantly suprised and all my effort , my after foot muscle was rewarded.[slideshow][slideshow]
It was a wonderful experience because I'm a little fan of ruins from several years ago, when my history teacher took us on a trip to Neamt Fortress which impressed me very much at that time.
I also liked very much that , even we were there in the early morning we have discovered that a lot of people arrived with the same goals, to take a breath of strong and fresh mountain air, to spend time with their friends, to make sport and to collect beautiful memories.
When I was walking that stairs I realize once again that to reach an high objective and to be on top anyone of us has to face and to overcome all of the stairs or obstacles that stand in our ways.
