The original plan was I would stay a year but there were some changes and I was offered this new position and asked to come home earlier. No matter how much I loved Romania and Bucharest I was happy to return to my family and the doggy friends!!!

Then I found out that the area has several Orthodox monasteries worth visiting, one of them even part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

This area is characteristic of its enormous rock faces but I saw some other friendly faces as well!
