Revelion in Romania

"Revelion" that´s how they call New Year´s Eve in Romania, where we went to spend our Christmas holiday this year.

From Bucharest we took a train to Suceava, in the north of the country, and after we went to "Cîmpulung" were we met some of Mihai´s University collages. They had arranged to spend three days in one of the Forest District Hut in the mountains. What a wonderful surprise was to discover that the hut was not a kind of cold woody refugee but a nice house with central heating and hidro-massage bathtubs!

We ate all kind of Romanian typical food that was incredible good. If you ever go there don´t miss the "Sarmale", "Chorba" soup, smoked trout, "mãmãliga" mmmmmmm so good! And what to say about the "Afinata", a home made blueberry liquor. It is so good I brought one liter with me back to Spain.

For the Revelion he started partying at 6 in the afternoon, at midnight we had champaign at -15º and later we enjoyed a karaoke-fire. Next day we went around in the village on a horse sledge, with the snow, jingle bells... so nice!

So, just to make you envious, here you have some pictures:
