June 4, 2008 Bucharest

After a relaxing morning of laundry and lunch of leftovers at the Vernon's apt. (after Christie & Andrei had gone to school), we met Alina at her office in the center of the city for a couple of quick museum visits, dinner at a bistro behind the museum/memorial to Enescu (Romania's most famous composer/violinist), then The Barber of Seville at the National Opera House. A terrific day.

Fantastic performance of The Barber of Seville, for 1/10th the price it would be at home
