The beautiful Sunday day has always been my favorite day. I call it beautiful Sunday because it was beautiful almost always.
Always, before I go for the compulsory walk, I look out the window. I like to be a sunny day.
Saturday and Sunday are the days when I go to have my favorite coffee. I used to go almost every day, but I was afraid of being overwhelming and losing pleasure. I decided to go to this cafe only at the end of the week. So every post about the beautiful Sunday day will always start with coffee.
Today is an important day for my country, Romania and for the European Union. Are the elections for the European Parliament! We'll have to go and vote. Little by little ... Now we are thinking about the beauty of life and the most beautiful part of the city where we live temporarily now, Iasi. So I ran to the botanical garden where I expect to see some special roses.
Indeed, I saw special roses. Not so many, because they are just beginning to bloom ...
The big surprise for us was the iris! Dozens of different species, as we have never seen before. Another flower that deserves a special post, a future blog about the botanical garden. The most beautiful botanical garden in Romania in my opinion. Now a few irises to make you craving!
I spent a few hours in the Garden. This of course stimulated our hunger. We decided to go to a very old restaurant that has great significance and notoriety in Romania.
This restaurant is famous because it was the favorite place of two important Romanian culture people. Mihai Eminescu, considered the national poet, the greatest Romanian poet, one of the last romantic poets and Ion Creanga, the poet's best friend and considered a great narrator. Their friendship is celebrated in Romania's literary history. They both lived in the nineteenth century.
We arrived at the restaurant in the middle of the day and this is an evening restaurant. That's how we were in the pleasant and strange situation of being alone in the restaurant. This situation is the first time for us (my wife and me) ... We chose to eat in the garden of the restaurant called Bolta Rece, I forgot to say. Bolta Rece means in the Romanian language the "cold roof"
The motto of this restaurant is very nice "Time passes ... friends stay!"
After a good meal in a gorgeous and strange atmosphere, being alone in a large restaurant, we went to vote.
Unfortunately, from an inattention, I was able to delete the photos from my phone and cannot show anything about the vote.
Fortunately ... a great joy! The elections were won by those I voted for. Young and competent politicians will go to the European Parliament from Romania!
That made this Sunday sublime! We have hope for the better.
