ROME DAY THREE: FOOTBALL AND HISTORY

Post available in English and Romanian
Am inceput turul Romei antice, cu o vizita la Forumul Imperial. Ruinele romane sunt chiar langa Piazza Venezia si pot fi admirate gratis din strada. Am gasit aici si celebra Columna a lui Traian despre care sunt sigura ca ati invatat la orele de istorie si care ne spune povestea nasterii poporului roman. We started our Ancient Rome tour with a visit to the Imperial Forum. The Roman ruins are located next to Piazza Venezia, and you can only visit them from the street. We admired the majestic ruins and also Trajan’s Column, which basically depicts how the Romanian people was born.

MY PASSION FOR FOOTBALL

Post available in English and Romanian
Chiar acum se joaca “El Clasico” de Romania, Steaua – Dinamo. Nu am putut ajunge de data asta, dar am incercat sa imi aduc aminte de cate ori am vazut meciul pe stadion. Asa ca m-am pus pe numarat. Ma ajuta si colectia mea de bilete… Today I’m watching the Romanian version of the famous football game: “El Clasico”: Steaua – Dinamo.

AMINTIRI DE LA EL CLASICO / EL CLASICO MEMORIES

Post available in English and Romanian
Sunt printre norocosii care au asistat, chiar de doua ori, la cel mai spectaculos meci de fotbal al zilelor noastre (cel putin pentru mine) El Clasico: Real Madrid – Barcelona. Nu am avut norocul sa prind live si o victorie a Realului pe Bernabeu (un meci s-a terminat 1-1 si celalalt1-3), dar a meritat pentru sentimentul de a vedea cele doua echipe jucand si pentru atmosfera fantastica. Voi ce pronostic aveti pentru meciul de azi? I’m one of the lucky people that saw twice the most spectacular football match of our days (at least from my point of view) El Clasico: Real Madrid – Barcelona. I wasn’t lucky enough to witness a Madrid victory on Santiago Bernabeu (one match ended 1-1 and the other 1-3), but it was totally worth it; the feeling of watching the two teams play and hearing the crowd chanting was amazing. What’s your prediction for today’s match?
