RO-10684, my first card from Romania, showing the old part of Bucharest. I love this card mainly because it has an accordion player on it. :) Apparently this area of Bucharest serves many purposes - it's the financial center of the city, like Wall Street; the Patriarchal Palace of the Romanian Orthodox Church is also located here, along with a "quaint" covered shopping street frequented by locals and tourists. I couldn't find much more information about it than that, though.
The Danubian Falcon (Falco cherrug), from a set of 5 stamps issued in 2009 on "Birds of the Danube Delta."
