Lake of Tears...

Without any intended reference to the band with the same name, I created this post (containing a few photos from April 2007) to show some shots of the famous lake from Ipotesti, near Botosani, Romania.
It's a very well known lake here in Romania, mostly due to the fact that in most of his great poems, the famous Mihai Eminescu describes this lake using great, heart-touching metaphors.

Once you actually get there though, you totally understand that nothing in those poems is exaggerated, it's indeed a sight that words simply cannot describe...

So, when I titled it "Lake of Tears", I guess I was actually thinking about tears of joy, in front of a natural beauty... (my photos don't do it justice, but these were the best I have so far)

The Picasa Web Album containing these (and 2 more):

PS. The article will be archived later as an entry for 2007.

Low Clouds

These shots are from March 2007...

We went to my in-laws and while crossing the mountains, the sky felt so low... we couldn't resist taking a few shots.

And here is the entire album:

Tzutzi - porcusorul de guineea

Aceasta e Tzutzi, porcusorul nostru de guineea (e femela).
Daca era mascul, as fi vrut sa ii pun numele Zorro... din cauza ca are "masca" aia neagra...

Ii place la nebunie salata si patrunjelul.

Cand vrea sa ne capteze atentia, scoate niste sunete ascutite, foarte apropiate de cum ar face un porc mic mic de tot...
Cred ca am inteles de unde se trage denumirea speciei... au apetitul si "glasul" ca al unor porci... foarte foarte mici.

Vatra Dornei

Vatra Dornei is a city and a mountain / ski resort in the north part of Romania.

Vatra Dornei is best known for the thermal and mineral waters, great landscape, pretty good mountain weather and the means to practice winter sports (almost 120 days of snow per year).
The resort is surrounded by a lot of forest-filled mountains: Bistrita, Calimani, Rodna, Mestecanis.
It's a pretty good place for a mountain vacation (either summer or winter).
