week 16 Romania..
buna dimineata, ce mai faci?
This country is a favourite of mine, I would dearly love to go there. Not just for the Dracula legends, but also for the scenery and the people.
One of my lovliest friends is Romanian. This is us a couple of Christmasses ago..
Because of him I started to learn to speak and read Romanian.. These are my books..
last time he went home, he brought me some postcards and bits back..
Occasionally I order food and beer from this romanian supermarket.
My friend lent a recipe book to me, and I made the Romanian rhubarb cake, you can see it and the recipe here...
Although I am not a fan of dance music, I do quite like it when it's in Romanian, and actually learning songs is a great way to learn a language. I often drive my household to distraction by singing along in Romanian lol My favourite group from over there is DJ Project.

So onto my card. The Romanians love to give painted eggs at Easter, and as we have just had Easter, I thought it would be appropriate.
Romanians believe that painted eggs bring luck and protect their homes against demons and unholy spirits. The shells of the Easter eggs are blessed, they should not be thrown away, but sprinkled over the soil in gardens to provide for fertility and richer crops.
and the back..
and the page, I used the colours of the flag, over which I stuck a romanian beer label and bottle cap. I then added a poem in romanian. The owl and the Pussycat, not an original romanian poem I know, but it was one of the things I read when first learning some of the language.
