Romania: Singing Carols

“Memories from Romania: On the last day I spent in [Onesti] many of the students came to the Cancelarie (staff room) to sing carols for the teachers. I had absolutely no idea they had prepared this, an absolutely delightful memory to take away :)” – by L-plate big cheese

Romania and Bulgaria became the EU's newest members Jan. 1, 2007.

Here's what Flickr user L-plate big cheese writes about Romania in the introduction to her Romania photo set:

This is a land which seems to have everything. And much of this everything seems to have been overshadowed by the developments of this and the last century. Now, it does not necessarily mean that Romania has been ruined, on the contrary. Her landscapes are a story of recent past and ancient past, all defused along one horizon.
