M is for Miklosaure

Another trip into the past in rural Romania, it was like going back 200years….. Horses and carts, very few cars, manual labour in the fields.

Potholed road into Miklosaure, deep in rural Transylvania

The first evening, we were entranced by the sight of the animals coming home from the fields:

…nearly there:

Cows coming home in the evening

Most of the cows could find their own way home, they knew exactly where they were going!



  1. Romania has served you well, Sue. A glimpse into the past indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I guess communism didn’t exactly fulfil its promises, did it? Fascinating to get a glimpse through your eyes and camera, Sue. Cattle certainly know their way home, even if they don’t always want to go there. 🙂


  3. I love these pastoral scenes taken from rural Romania.

  4. Love that last one, Sue. 🙂 🙂 I wonder how much it’s changed now? Some parts not at all, I imagine.

  5. wonderful place, Sue

  6. I love the sense of times past, as you obviously did too.

      The whole reason for going…we saw an article in The Telegraph, I think, advisIng people to go soon (about 2005), so we dithered for a year or so, contacted a company that specialised in Transylvania, and off we went!!
