I travelled more than 1000 kilometres in the last two weeks, from my new home to some places I already know well, and to some that I’ve only seen a couple of times, like this little village – Balc/Bályok, Bihor County, Romania –, hidden away from the buzz of modern life. (Although on the streets elderly people keep talking about their Facebook-presence.) Becoming a mountain man is something new for me, something I’ve got to adopt to, so it was reassuring to see a scene that was hundreds of kilometers away in a village that I saw for the first time just a year ago, a scene which nonetheless could have come straight from my childhood in my village. When was the last time you walked the streets barefoot?
