I like your country for very many reasons, especially for the generosity of its people. I have known Romania since the years 2000, when I was invited here to a beauty pageant. Ever since, I have been trying to convince people to come to Romania and invest in the local film making industry. Romania is a complex country, it resembles Italy.
