Description

Birthday card with text both sides and original watercolour by Silvia Radu. From Silvia Radu and Vasile Gorduz (Romania) to Geoffrey Tyler (US) in 1988.

English translation of text facing the 'spring' watercolour:
We are healthy after a spring with health problems. My father also wishes you "Happy Birthday to you". In a month and a week we go to the sea. We are waiting for news from you. Gorduz prepares sculptures for bronze. We've had a lot of rain this spring. A little too much, hope it does not stop.
With all our friendship, Silvia and Vasile
Original text in French:
Nous sommes en bonne santé après un printemps avec des problèmes de santé. Mon père vous souhaite aussi Happy Birthday to you. Dans un mois et une semaine nous venons partir à la mer. Nous attendons vos nouvelles. Gorduz prépare des sculptures pour le bronze. Nous avons eu beaucoup de pluie ce printemps. Un peu trop, espérons que ça ne s'arrête pas.
Avec toute notre amitié, Silvia et Vasile
