I was born in Romania, where I lived 30 years under comunism and poorness.
In 1997 I immigrated to Canada, where I lived 8 years a better life.
In 2006 I moved to South Africa, in 2007 to Chile, and in 2009 to La Palma (Canary, Spain),
all these in order to pursue my dedication for astronomy!
Not sure where is my home anymore, but this is my virtual home for sure!
I dedicate my site to the Romanian martyrs from December 1989, whose ideals are not fulfilled, yet!
