"It’s bullshit to think of friendship and romance as being different. They’re not. They’re just variations of the same love. Variations of the same desire to be close."

RENA EFFENDI - A FAIRY TALE IN TRANSYLVANIA

When Rena Effendi went to Transylvania to photograph hay for National Geographic, she envisioned a fairy tale, someplace almost medieval. But when she arrived in the Gyimes valley, she was disappointed. The scenery had been spoiled, she thought, by modern architecture.

“I was greedy,” Ms. Effendi said. “I wanted to find the real, bucolic, medieval type of scenery, and I couldn’t find it there.” So she consulted an expert.

She googled two words: ‘Transylvania’ and ‘hay.’ Among the first results was Maramures, a Romanian-speaking region where one can find distilleries and mills more than 500 years old. When Ms. Effendi arrived, she fell in love with the “Romanian Transylvanian fairy tale” she discovered.

“I found villages where almost all women know how to do embroidery and almost every man knows how to build a house from scratch,” she said. (read the whole story here)

 
A LITTLE SHOÉ STORY

When I was about 7 or maybe 8 years old, I helped my grandaunt and granduncle making hay. After everything was unloaded, my granduncle threw the fork into a pile of hay, the only problem was my little pink toe in between. Too good that my grandaunt always had some Slivovits at hand for desinfection purposes…
