Snow in the Midst

A rainy Sunday in Cluj may seem to not be very interesting. However, it can get a lot more interesting if you choose to take a car ride with Horia somewhere. In this case, a big group of folks headed up to Bǎişoara to see the first big snow of the year in Romania.

Bǎişoara is a tiny little “town” of sorts, with a nice little ski run right off of the main road. It was great to see snow! The place reminded me so much of my Colorado home, it was crazy. Pine trees, fresh air, snowflakes.

I have to admit though, I’ve never actually tried doing anything besides skiing on a ski run. These guys are champions, and since there was not enough snow to ski on, we packed on the hiking boots and walked up the ski run instead. Pretty nice, though I was a bit winded (probably from all that Romanian food and none of that American exercise. Anyway, a few snowballs later, we were back in the Romanian driving amusement ride heading back to Cluj.
