A Day at the Farm - A Romanian Culture Lesson

This past weekend we were invited to spend the day in the Romanian countryside.  Oti Bunaciu, our friend and pastor, organized a fun time  for a group of us at his maternal grandparents' old home place.  It is in the hills of Romania and very rustic.  His cousins did an old-fashioned grill with sausages, kabobs, fried potatoes, green peppers, and onions.  Oh my, the food was plentiful and so, so good!  The water was out of a nearby well and the hillside was dotted with bee hives.  Apple and pear trees were abundant along with blackberry bushes.  Ralph and I were able to experience a bit of Romanian culture outside of the big city.  Oti's cousins were generous with their hospitality and we all had a great time.
