Indeed, the night at the museums, as a free event, it becomes quite popular, year after year, and so I could saw and felt, same time, that it has a huge impact over the youth and, to be fair, actually to the people of all ages, various ages and typologies, with the huge desire of openly receive socio-cultural informations, to update their knowledge through the  exhibitions or galleries involved  ...

"Friend is the one who is holding your hand, but , actually he is touching your heart!"
So...to continue our way, in the night, celebrating the museums, through the special places open to visit, we came from the Lipscani, from the library to the "Romanian Design Week"...at Hanul Gabroveni. 
"Hanul Gabroveni *este un monument de arhitectură din București, situat pe str. Lipscani, fiind construit între anii 1804 și 1818.
(... Hanul) se află situat în centrul istoric al capitalei între stradă Lipscani și strada Gabroveni. La nivelul Bucureștiului, această zonă se regăsește la limita sudică a centrului orașului și constituie o mare parte a centrului istoric al Capitalei. 
"În 2009, hanul Gabroveni a intrat într-un program de reabilitare, terminat în 2014 și care a constat în reconversia să în Centru Cultural printr-un proiect în valoare de 37 de milioane de lei.„Hanul Gabroveni, inaugurat după restaurare de 37 mil. lei”. Wall-Street.ro. 18 septembrie 2014. Accesat la 23 septembrie 2014.
Gabroveni Inn is a monument of architecture in Bucharest, located on the str. Lipscani, built between 1804 and 1818."
Gabroveni is located in the historic city center between the Lipscani Street and the Gabroveni street . At the level of Bucharest, this is found in the southern area of the city center and a great part of the historical center of Bucharest." (...) 
In 2009, the Gabroveni Inn entered into a rehabilitation program, completed in 2014 and consisted of the conversion to the Cultural Centre through a project worth 37 million lei. "Gabroveni opened after restoration of 37 million . lei ". Wall-Street.ro. 18 September 2014. Accessed September 23, 2014."

"Gabroveni Inn*: Built in 1739 on a land plot belonging to the former Voivodal Court (which was much larger than the present-day ruins of the Old Court—Romanian: Curtea Veche—show), the inn belonged to the "Inner Town" (Romanian: Târgul Dinlǎuntru), the inside section of Bucharest's Fortress. The inn was raised by Prince Constantin Mavrocordat, who decided to have a bezesten (the word is Turkish, meaning "large, square building, hosting shops all around, like in marketplaces"). These shops could only be rented by foreign merchants during the period they stayed in Bucharest doing business.

The inn was also known during the 18th century as Hanul Bezesten ("Bezesten Inn"), because it resembles a Turkish bezesten, boasting large shades covering almost the whole street on the sides. Merchants from the famous crafts town of Gabrovo used to lodge at the inn when selling their products in the city. The inn was named after these merchants, as was the street on which it is located, a name that has survived into the 21st century."

"I hope you'll not make a funny face,
When I'll show you a joyful place...

Of modern pieces of arts,

of many inner and hidden thoughts,
of so strange and, also, pretty views of lives
brought to surface and presented in bright lights! 

Lots of items, things, details and aspects...

from the enlightened and sunny skillful minds,
The art seen as a "life parade", in these nights,
who are meant to open the people's hearts....
So, I hope you'll not make a funny face,
When I'll show you this joyful place..."

From Did you know Category/ Știați că*: 

The peony * is a flowering plant in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America. Boundaries between species are not clear and estimates of the number of species range from 25 to 40.
The peony is named after Paeon (also spelled Paean), a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil; Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.
So thankful for contribution.
The family name "Paeoniaceae" was first used by Friedrich K.L. Rudolphi in 1830, following a suggestion by Friedrich Gottlieb Bartling that same year. The family had been given other names a few years earlier.

Etimologie: Bujor * = Peony; Din bulgară божур (božúr) < slavă (veche) *božurъ.

The psychology of happiness

"Ce anume face ca viata sa merite a fi traita? Sau care e secretul fericirii? constantand ca banii nu aduc fericirea, Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi observa acei oameni care gasesc fericirea si satisfactia vietii in activitati care aduc o stare de “flux”.  Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi a contribuit prin munca de cercetare la intelegerea conceptului de fericire, creativitate si notiunea de “flux” – acea stare de concentrare sporita si de imersiune in activitati precum arta, joaca si munca din pasiune."

"Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has contributed pioneering work to our understanding of happiness, creativity, human fulfillment and the notion of "flow" — a state of heightened focus and immersion in activities such as art, play and work."

A lovely story of life in a positive note...

*Excerpts from the trailer, above.

"Last Chance Harvey"** este un film, co-producție britanico-americană (2008), o dramă romantică scrisă și regizată de Joel Hopkins. Scenariul se concentrează pe doi oameni singuri care își crează provizoriu o relație pe parcursul a trei zile. Dustin Hoffman joacă rolul un compozitor american care își pierde slujba, dar, și poziția sa de tatăl al miresei în cursul unei singure zile, în timp ce Emma Thompson, interpretează un lucrător aeroportuar cu o viziune preconcepută asupra relatiilor. "
"Last Chance Harvey is a 2008 British-American romantic drama film written and directed by Joel Hopkins. The screenplay focuses on two lonely people who tentatively forge a relationship over the course of three days. Dustin Hoffman plays an American composer who loses his job and his position of father of the bride in the course of a single day overseas while Emma Thompson plays an airport worker with a jaundiced view of relationships." Click to read more infos on Wikipedia*
..."With his job on the line, Harvey travels to London for his daughter’s wedding, where in a chance encounter at the airport he meets Emma Thompson’s Kate, who works there for the Office of National Statistics, and together, over the course of 24 hours, they inch their way towards falling in love. The story’s simplicity, however, is belied by the complexities that go with being two older people, struggling against their fear of a new, potentially profound, relationship."

  1. Your black and white photo has a dream-like quality. Wonderful what a difference removing the colour makes.

    1. Thank you for appreciation and I think the same... that the image changed a bit...

  2. mi-a placut mult plimbarea alaturi de tine, cât de multe lucruri interesante am vazut! mi-ar fi placut in mod special sa fiu acolo langa razboiul de tesut! wow... superbe mostre!
    Draga mea, pentru ca astazi s-a dat startul intr-o noua luna - La multi ani tuturor copiilor dar si tuturor adultilor care undeva într-un colt al sufletului, pastreaza copilul ce au fost odata, stiind înca sa se bucure de maruntisurile cotidiene, asa cum doar copiii stiu sa o faca! Pupici ♥

    1. Cu mult drag, La multi ani, asemenea si cu multe bucurii, mici si mari, la un loc! Asa e, trebuie, sa ne bucuram ca niste copii, pentru a putea sa ne reincarcam bateriile... Mare adevar!
      Ma bucur, asemenea ca plimbarea, pe care o postez cu ceva intarziere si "mici, mari poticniri tehnice" a fost placuta, vizual!
      Toate bune pentru acest inceput de saptamana, intr-o zi de dubla sarbatoare! Pupici cu drag!

  3. Wonderful post. I enjoyed seeing all the exhibits and images. The sky shots with the birds are awesome. Love the peonies. Thanks for sharing your visit. Enjoy your Monday and the week ahead!

    1. Hello Alexa, stopping by to say thank you for visit and for the nice comment..

  4. Am vazut filmul L.C.H.! :) Mi-a placut foarte mult si imi plac actorii din acest film.

  5. Frumoasa plimbare, o saptamana cat mai placuta iti doresc!

  6. Je suis contente de voir que les Européens ont de plus en plus d'événements culturels communs: la nuit des musées en fait partie!
    La pivoine est une fleur magnifique, dans ma région elle s'appelle aussi "rose de la Pentecôte" parce qu'elle fleurit en général à cette époque!
    Très belles photos et textes très riches , bravo de partager avec nous toutes ces recherches!

  7. :) am revenit sa iti spun ca am vazut filmul pe care l-ai recomandat - multumesc! Mi-am sters câteva lacrimi din coltul ochilor, am oftat si... am sperat pentru binele relatiei lui Harvey si Kate ☺ Imi plac ambii actori atât Dustin Hoffman, cât si Emma Thompson, asa ca vreau sa spun, si daca filmul nu ar fi fost o romanta draguta, probabil ca tot mi-ar fi placut, pentru ca cei doi sunt nascuti sa fie actori, ei stiu sa intre in pielea orcarui personaj, facându-l sa para real. Impresionanta povestea celor doi, cunosc atât de multe persoane in situatia lor si ce frumos ar fi daca fiecare si-ar folosi sansa :) sansa de a fi fericiti alaturi de persoana potrivita.
    Multumesc inca o data pentru recomandare! pup :-*
