Before the food is served

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.
