From the only road that goes through town, this is the view of our home.
Our family built it themselves fifteen years ago. Took them all year from spring to fall.
Our car fits nicely in the courtyard behind the gate.
They insist we bring it in to keep it away from 'vagabonds.'
We travel about on 'carutsa' whenever we can. It saves gas. Of course sometimes we need to move the van to make room for the horsecart to get out.
On days when we have to take the van, and it gets all muddy, Petru helps us wash it off.
Amazing how clean it gets with a broom and a bucket of river water.
Our family takes great care of us. Here we're eating staple Romanian treat: roasted pumpkin seeds.
Getting ready for Orthodox Church.
When Petru's not wrangling horses, he takes time to cut hair. Never met a more gentle pair of hands.
They make us fresh bread and pastries.
And they make special vegetarian food for us.
When we showed them our web page, it was like watching people experience TV for the first time.
Our home has a TV, like most Romanian homes.
The nation is glued to 'Sunset Beach,' what they call a telenovela, and what we'd call a soap opera playing in prime time.
Petru 'junior' (son in law) and Petru 'senior' cutting wood for the winter.
Plumbing in the village.
Here in the villages of Maramures, everyone composts what goes into the 'toileta.'
The young girl in our house Ileana prepares for her big trip to Bucharest with her school dance performance group.
Our house even came complete with affectionate kitty.
We like it here.
