greetings from bacau

A Romanian postcrosser named Leonard sent this card from Bacau. The city, he writes, is the birthplace of George Bacovia (shown on the left), one of five national poets of Romania. He adds that Nadia Comaneci and Bela Karoly, the women's gymnast trainer, were both born in his native Onesti, not far from Bacau. Many thanks, Leonard.
