Dear Cristina,

How beautiful! Thank you so much for these photos. I've never been to Romania. I've always wondered what it is like. The yellow field, the monastery, the mountains, the lake, and flowers. Everything is shining and so beautiful. I'd love to visit your country someday in my life time!!
