Pietroasele, Romania:

I got lucky again on my trip. A friend of a friend named Dragos was able to give me a free ride from Brasov to Iasi, wih a detour to Pietroasele, giving me a window-tour of nine of the 41 counties of Romania. Although his vehicle was smaller than a clown car, I didn't complain. I will never forget our stop in a small farming community called Pietroasele. I got to see first hand how farmers, Dragos' grandparents, live in Romania. Notice how different Dragos clothes are compared to his grandparents.
