It’s Monday evening, raining cats and dogs and
China celebrates 64 years since People’s
Republic of China
was proclaimed. Old, shiny generals, smiling Romanian politicians and foreign
diplomats shake hands, chit-chat and warm up before the food is served. Romania’s
Government is all gathered on the stage next to the Chinese Ambassador. “Red wine
for everybody, except for Mr. Antonescu who takes white wine,” says Ponta in a joking mood,
all shiny and happy. Mr.Antonescu shows no reaction to this joke and the ceremony
goes on smoothly.
At the end, when I look at the key for the wardrobe, I discover that it has a picture of Hannah
Montana attached. Apparently not only my
primary school cousins are so fond of her, but the Chinese Embassy also has a little
something for the American teenage symbol.
