[Dec 17] Postcard from Romanian Gymnastics Team visiting a Monastery
????Romanian Gymnastics Team has visited "Simbata de Jos" Monastery, during their Mountain training camp at "Paraul Rece" Mountain resort.
???Romania has an Orthodox majority (like 90%) population and a long historical tradition of building (and visiting, in modern ages) beautifully build Monasteries. These are not just religion-related buildings, they have also historical museums with very old books, (first books ever to be printed were produced in such places) traditional objects and clothes, a visit to such a place being good for children (school) education, also.
???Romanian gymnastics Team also visited a trout farm. (video link above)
???Alina Stanculescu: "We do have moments when it's very difficult for us but when we say our prayers we pass through these difficult moments and we know that God is helping us."
????Alexandra Ghita: "God always helped me when I said my prayers to Him.I Know that 'somebody' [God] is helping me"
?????Puia Valer, team coreographer: "In Gymnastics, as in religion, there is no place for superficialiy."
