*Nov 4th, 2001
Bucium, Romania:

Cristina brought me to an area east of Iasi called Bucium, about 20 miles from the border with Russia. Cristina likes to suprise me on where we are going, so I had no expectations. What a beautiful area! The autumn colors made the trees look like they were on fire.

If you look closely, we're laughing, not smiling for the camera, for Cristina got to experience firsthand on how funny it is to see me run like hell after setting up my camera and clicking the timer.
