The final event in the Ottawa Welcomes The World series was on the first of December, with Romania as its subject.
Blouses In Bloom was the title for a series of photographs hung here promoting traditional textile craftsmanship in Romania. Photographer Alexandru Zainea and actress Laura Cosoi collaborated for these.
Also on display were art and artisan goods, as well as food and tourism information about the country.
Among the panels were a series of photographs of St. Matthew Romanian Orthodox Church, which is out in the west end. I shall have to seek it out at some point.
I finish with a view of people at the event. I thoroughly enjoyed attending these embassy events throughout the year. They were informative, educational, and inspired thoughts of travel to the far corners of the world.
