The Last King of Romania

Today our Learning Experience to Bucharest, December 2017, came to an end. It was a roller coaster, this trip. We had a great group. We experienced so many things. It will take some time to sink in. Today, Saturday December 16th, the last King of Romania, was said farewell by thousands of people.

For the Last King of Romania. Across the street, opposite of our apartment, the last King of Romania is waiting for his last resting-place, after he died at the age of 96. For the fourth evening in a row, thousands of people are standing in line, waiting to pay their respect to him. They often have to wait for 5 to 10 hours. Obviously this King was loved by many people. Most people hope his death is the beginning of a better future for Romania.

Check out the BBC-webpage for more information on the King, or checkout the interview we had with people standing in line to pay their respect to the King.
