Greetings from Romania where this past week we celebrated Women's day. Romanians thought it was an international day. We explained that in America we celebrate the second Sunday in May as Mother's day. They were surprised and thought our holiday sounded odd.
This is not a head stone. They are all over Romania and tell you how far to the next city. Here it is 4 kilos to Sibiu
The other side says 1 kilo to Selimbar. Since we are really close to our house we're not sure where they get the 1 kilometer. Also this is the only one we've ever seen on a sidewalk. Mostly they are out along roadways where there are no sidewalks. This one was probably installed originally along a roadway that is now in a city.
P day this week was zoo day. I had thought to never go to a zoo again since our 18 months in Uganda gave us the most amazing animal experiences. Going to a zoo would be boring after that but Eugen (middle figure) wanted to go for his birthday and since it only cost 75 cents American we decided to humor him with our presence.
Fun taking pictures of the missionaries. They were as animated as the animals.
Elder Brown with the green Python. Good thing there was a glass between him and the man or the man would have disturbed his rest.
A very active tiger. Maybe he was new to prison life because he was a pacer.
Seeing and smelling these orange blossoms reminded me that even in winter you can have a touch of Arizona if you have a very large South facing atrium.
