Blessing of the house
On November 8th, the day of St. Michael and St. Gabriel according to the Christian-Orthodox calendar, we organized a religious ceremony among relatives and close Brazilian and Romanian friends in order to bless, with the local priest, the building that serves as the seat of Fernando's Hideaway in Draguseni, Suceava county. The guest of honor was H.E. Vitor Gobato, the Ambassador of Brazil in Bucharest, whom we afterwards guided to the towns of Târgu Neamt, Gura Humorului and the monastery of Voronet, part of the UNESCO world heritage.
