This was my grandmother from my mother’s side, grandma Bernaveta. She was so happy to see me for Easter. She would always cook for us and her yummy stews were the best!
Auntie Maria still lives in the house where my dear grandmother Bernaveta used to live. She carries on the traditions, runs her own little farm and plants her own crops. She is very serious in photos, but is a very lively, talkative lady in real life!
On one of my solo trips through Ciocanesti, Romania, I find this relaxed dog, bathing in the sunlight. He’s probably the guard for the house behind him.
