259-2020 – Aerial view of Sacele City Centre


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is an aerial view of Sacele City Centre on a sunny day. The city since 1950 is composed of former villages which now form the main sectors: Baciu (Bácsfalu, Batschendorf), Turcheș (Türkös, Türkeschdorf), Cernatu (Csernátfalu, Zerndorf), and Satulung (Hosszúfalu, Langendorf). In the image above I mainly captured Cernatu. Like, comment & share!

248-2020 – White House with the Red Rooftop


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the white house with the red rooftop I see everyday from my kitchen window.

235-2020 – Gulas


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a traditional dish in Transilvania: Gulas Our neighbours invited us to join them for lunch and they cooked a wonderful Gulas with chicken and polenta.

Initially, we joined the queue to hop on the cable car from Busteni to Babele, situated at about 2200 m altitude, but after one hour, we realised that we didn’t advance at all, so we end up taking a taxi to “Cabana Piatra Arsă” via Sinaia. From there, it was a nice climb up all the way up to “Babele” aka “The old ladies” and “the Sphinx”. Like, comment & share!
