After a night under the stars we woke up in the place we had dream of. The morning light made colors around so vibrant! We started eating our breakfast from leftovers, we still had a lot of cake, tofu and nettles. Even though I was getting tired of tofu, and even though it was my birthday trip I knew I had to eat it, because we had limited food, and we didn’t know how long it’s going to last. I loved the cake even more today, the flavors had blended somehow and we made some milk from powdered milk to eat along with the cake. Then we wasted some time around, enjoying the stay in the morning sun, washing in the river, talking to the cows, walking around the place and making plans for the day.
We headed to a place called “Cazanele Dunarii”, translated means: The Danube’s Boilers. The place’s name comes from the fact that the river there it’s somehow tightened by the rocks on both sides of it, so the water looks like boiling from it’s high flow, but we didn’t see it this way though… I suppose the water levels were low at this time. We walked on the marked path, beating around with a stick to chase away the vipers, you know that this is a rocky place where vipers along with other reptiles have there home. We didn’t see vipers and we were happy with the situation, but we saw some cute lizards bathing in the sun. We walked up on the highest rock and enjoyed the incredible landscape, then we went down to it, near the water. We drove on the road along the river to see the landscapes at the sunset and we saw the biggest rock sculpture in Europe: Decebalus Rex Statue. And last but not list we searched a shop for a beer.. not for the beer but for the can. We found that we forgot a bag at home full of things we just started missing, the most important being the metallic cups, where we used to boil water for the teas, milk and soups. And we found a good replacement..what did we have for dinner? Mushroom soup made from dried mix, our favorite in the wild!
