This year's trip was very special. Beside playing couple of concerts, practicing the violin, taking photos, traveling to Romania and Germany, we also christened our daughter Vivienne on July 31 in Bucharest. There are photos of that ceremony (used with permission of local photographers) on Vivienne's website.
For this event we had guests and family coming from USA, Greece, Russia and of course from Romania. So, we can say it was a pretty international event!
The ceremony happened at the St. Nicholas Udricani Church in Bucharest (above) and it was performed by Vivienne's godfather Pr.Dr.Univ. Constantin Patuleanu (below).
After this event, taking advantage of the good weather we went for a trip around Romania and here are couple of images we took. Some of the photos are taken by Inna, my wife's sister. We used two Nikons D90 & D40 with 18-200VR & 18-55.
