It was a good day...

When the Ottomans were driven out of Wallachia and Moldova. Had this not occurred, I probably never would have met my future wife. I would like to take this occasion to thank the Russian Empire for making this happening, along with additional help provided by France and the U.K. at that time.

I just got back from Romania and have a far fresher perspective on the history of that area, including a less horrific picture of Prince Vlad Tepes and Transylania and Wallachia's struggle against the Ottomans.
