The following photos were taken on a monthlong trip through Romania in June 2007.
Photo Gallery 17 - Sibiu
Sibiu is the "European Capital of Culture [for] 2007," which translated into
Romanian reads: "No Hotel Rooms [until] 2008." So we stayed 12 km out of town in
the village of Rasinari (see following gallery), where sheeps strolled the
rolling hillsides and cows mooed past our window in the morning. On balance,
we preferred it to the rather oversold and tourist-inundated Sibiu.
