Weekly Travel Theme: Costume

Over at Where’s my Backpack, Ailsa has set us our Weekly Travel Theme: Costume. Initially flummoxed, I realised that in my travels I have seen a few events with people in traditional costume….so my image (no slideshow today) is of the Tanjaua, a ploughing festival in a small village, Horteni, in Maramures, Romania. It is an ancient agricultural custom which celebrates the first villager who comes out to plough. He is escorted by young men who bear a brightly decorated traditional contraption which I believe is created from wooden beams used to put cattle in yoke.
It made for a very lively morning out, with villagers and people from the surrounding area turning out in large numbers, many of them in traditional costume.

  1. So many fit men, Sue. Where to begin?

  2. Romania – and music with them? or in silence?

  3. Reminds me of the horse festival I featured today. Amazing the things people celebrate!

  5. They look a bit like mad Morris dancers, and there’s nothing wrong with that either. 🙂
