This morning we left for Maramures, Romania. After a bus and train ride to the border town, we had lunch in Debrecen. Then, we boarded a 1 car train into Romania and after another bus ride, we arrived in the hill country of Romania for our homestay. It’s great to be able to see more remote places when you’re with a small group. And the train ride was gorgeous scenery. Fields and fields of corn and sunflowers, with rolling hills, and rustic haystacks. It reminded me a bit of Eastern Washington. On the ride from the train station, we went through little towns, that confirm your Eastern European stereotypes from movies, complete with babushka type women sitting out chatting on road-side benches. They just make you smile.
