The video below shows a rather typical village scene.
Also somewhere along the road we found a woman selling kurtoskalas, something I had learned to love while living in Hungary. My fellow team member had asked if we could stop for bread. I had no idea this is what she was meaning. I was surely happy, and I think too it was some of the best kurtos I have ever had.
We got to Brasov about 5:30PM and checked into the City Centre Hotel. We had just lovely rooms here. Mine was quite cool when I walked in, but I turned up the radiators.
We headed out to the pedestrian shopping area,walking up to the main market square. Then we backtracked to wonderful restaurant. The waiter brought us complimentary schnapps-- oh does that burn going down!
This restaurant had gulyas on the menu. This is the first time I've had this since living in Hungary.
We were early to bed and then up for breakfast at 8:30. I could see our trusty van had a dusting of snow.
Following breakfast we checked out of the hotel and then our van driver went about halfway to the location of the Black Church, called that because the stone has been blackened over time by fire.
We first walked by some very interesting glass mosaic art pieces.
After seeing everything we could we walked back to the van and headed for Bran Castle, but that's another story.
