Following the concert here in Toronto celebrating, on First of December, One Hundred Years anniversary of Romania, here are both Rhapsodies of George Enescu, supported by wonderful aerial views of our country of birth, that will remain in our souls and minds to the day we’ll leave this earth:
La Multi Ani tara draga, si Sarut Miinile ca m-ai adus pe acest Pamint si m-ai crescut asa cum sint!

On special request from our Canadian guests I might translate this last poetic manifest! 🙂
Finally, being a bibliophile, here is my copy with bookmarks for the chapters of our Queen’s heroic ordeal, in the the form of a personal journal, helping her consort, King Ferdinand I in building Great Romania, both on the front of First World War as a nurse and in Diplomacy:
Ordeal: The Story of My Life by Marie, Queen of Roumania (1935)
Marie, Queen of Roumania
And the rest as they say is History!
As a bit of trivia, my mother’s given name at baptism is Maria 🙂
