I have been working on a story about one of the last leper colonies in Europe, in Tichilesti, Romania. There are about 21 patients who live in what they call a leper hospital. In fact, it's a small community of nice elderly people who share a tiny village. It's more like summer camp, where everyone has their little room or house, with gardens, little vegetable crops, pets, and whatever they please. I'll post the story when I'm done but, for now, I just wanted to post a few portraits of some of the people I've been spending time with.
