Back in Prague

I'm back in Prague after just three weeks, for a sort of work exchange with the Czech Mediafax agency.

People dance under the close watch of a bodyguard (1), during a concert in Vama Veche.


Players rest in between two games of oina. I am working on a story on this sport called oina. It is a traditional Romanian sport, very similar to baseball, which originated around the 14th century as a shepherds' pastime activity.

Home Again

Almost home. Back in Romania, on the way to Bucharest, we stopped for a couple of nights in Cluj, at Bogdana's sister. We've been eating and drinking ever since, hanging out with our lovely hosts, Cristina (pictured bellow) and Dani.


My significant other flew into Vienna. We then drove to Prague and Budapest for a short vacation.
