“Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else.” — Lawrence Block

Foodie moment

We headed back to the same restaurant (why mess with a good thing!). Mark had been eyeing off a pork knuckle, so we ordered that, and also ordered Beef steak in Whisky Sauce. Once again great food, and once again SO affordable. I have to say that I think the Pork knuckle won the battle against Mark though!


Cultural moment

In the main square of Sibiu they had set up a huge inflatable movie screen and put out rows of deckchairs. As it got dark they all filled up, plus standing room, and free movies were played. We didn't watch any (they were not in English), only heard them from our restaurant but it was an interesting auditory experience as they were full of a lot of explosions, dogs barking and some adult scenes which may not have been appropriate for the children watching!!


Wow moment

Today we headed to the biggest tourist attraction in Sibiu (literally), the outdoor living museum. It is a huge parkland where traditional buildings and businesses from different parts of the country have been relocated and refurbished. It covers metal workers, weavers, water mills, hunters and the different styles of traditional architecture. A massive day, its a great way to see a lot without having to travel far, and the weather was lovely!


The town centre of Sibiu was one of our favourites so far. Made up of 3 massive squares surrounded by churches and restaurants, every turn leads to another photo moment.


What we learnt today

Although thankfully we never came across hard evidence of this, we get the feeling that many Romanians carry guns. One hint was this sign outside a bank. Another was the big bullet hole (we think!) in the window of our train window! But it is safe here...it really is!!
