"At Alba Iulia on December 1, 1918, the treaty was signed creating the union of Transilvania, Wallachia and Moldavia that forms modern-day Romania."
I hereby wish all Romanians, everywhere, a
Happy National Day!
Last year I spent 1 December in Alba Iulia with friends Valer and Leonina from UBB-Cluj, and with Leonina's good friend Andreea, who lives there in "Alba."
Today Valer is an MBA candidate at Plymouth State University and works as a graduate assistant here in New Hampshire. He and I will "celebrate" tomorrow by driving to Boston University's Goldman School of Dental Medicine, where I shall have three surgical implants installed where three of my front teeth used to be. Afterwards, we shall go to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Valer has an appointment to meet a Bentley University business professor to discuss Vali's interest in their Ph.D. program. Please wish us both, "Noroc!"
Life goes on!
