While driving through the green hills and misty valleys near Suceava, the gateway to the painted monasteries of Bucovina, we stopped to enjoy a particularly beautiful view. As we rested, a man and his young dog approached us from a nearby farm. We didn’t speak Romanian and the farmer didn’t speak English but we played with his dog, and much enjoyed our encounter. From his farewell, it appeared he enjoyed his time with us as well.
