December 1st, Romania’s National Day and our first Parade

The first day of the winter is a special one for Romanians: is our national day. Each year, as you may imagine, we have a parade in Bucharest (Romania’s capital) and Alba Iulia – the city in which the union took place. Yes, on December 1st 1918, the delegates present in Alba Iulia declared Transylvania the Union of Transylvania with Romania. This became our National Day after the Revolution in 1989 (you can read here.)

Even if I am 33 and Andrei is 41, we never went to our national parade – together, or separated. So today, even if it started to snow in the morning, we decided to take our son, Eric (3 years and five months old) to this parade.

We knew that he won’t be very patient, so we didn’t leave very early in the morning. We had to leave our car on a street before the official parade zone – of course there were some traffic limitations, absolutely logical. But this was in fact our luck!

When we got down from the car, we saw the tanks 😉
Then, after a rather long walk with snow and wind in our faces, we saw the parade gendarmes of the gala uniforms.

When we got back to the car, we had the chance to see all the vehicles (except for airplanes and helicopters) – marine, land – various types of tanks, etc. – passing by. They waved at us – there were several people on the side of the road taking photos, as were we, waving flags and hands – and some of the troops saluted us too – hands or horns ;). Click on each photo to view it in a larger size.

After several hours in the not so friendly weather outside, we got back into the car and then home. But it was a lovely and interesting day – and i hope you like the photos I manage to take.

Of course, you can use other materials out there since there are different kinds of animal skin that is used to make them. However, they are stylish and durable as well. You cannot break leather easily especially when they are made thick. They also can come light to wear. Maintaining them is not much of a hassle so you can always use as many times as you want. serienummer på canada goose 4 p louis vuitton http://www.bart-smit.nl/ christian louboutin wall art 2.el christian louboutin NFL Women New England Patriots Nike Nate Ebner Elite White Jersey In 2011 alone, love 61 wildlife habitat improvements underway in over 1000 acres; more than 40 youth events – like the Jakes program were organized; and a dozen outreach programs designed to encourage women to outdoor activities like those the particular Women in Outdoors events, were held. We all have patterns and programs, which run in the background of our minds, controlling our behaviour and dictating our actions. No matter how hard you try consciously, you just can’t seem to make any changes, or you do for a while and shortly after you’re back to your old ways. Why is this? It’s because your patterns are programmed at a subconscious level and are not something you can easily change or even recognise on your own.
