Little Surprises

Sometimes showing interest and knowing a little of the language makes a big difference.  We found this out repeatedly in Brasov.  The elderly gentleman in the photo is one of a group of three who made this sculpture.  It was made s part of a celebration of the overthrow of Ceaucescu.  The sculptors circled Romania's borders thrice with it before bringing it to its current resting place.  He also told us about some of the changes to Brasov over the years.  The Brasov sign on the mountain, for instance, said "Stalin" in the 1960's.  All of this was in Romanian and it was very interesting talking with him.
