Visiting markets while traveling is probably one of the best experiences a photographer can have. They are the center for the culture and you can see what daily life is like. It's not always easy though. Sometimes it’s difficult to find, or hard to get to, or or not the safest place. However, with a few simple tips in mind, going to a market to do some photography can be easy and rewarding.1. Know when and where the market is.

Romanian food (like any other cuisine) was influenced in its development by its neighbors and any country that had anything to do with it at any time. Turkish, Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, German and Hungarian cuisines helped Romanian cuisine grow a larger list of dishes. Several ingredients, spices and recipes were introduced during our long history and adapted to our culture and needs.However, I will not write about gastronomy history here because I am not that gifted. I will write about... continue reading
If I should make a count about Romanians' favorite ingredients or foods I would get to a very simple conclusion: meat (a lot of it, mostly pork), mamaliga (polenta), telemea (a Romanian cheese, a bit similar to feta, but better in taste - sorry Greeks, but it's true), tomatoes, fresh onion and garlic.You might think it's simple, but we, Romanians, are taking our tomatoes very seriously. Almost everybody with a garden or even a small corner in a balcony or kitchen or yard, will plant... continue reading

One of the main areas of Romania in which this craft was widely spread is... continue reading
It´s a great occasion. All family and friends meet together and celebrate. It starts with live pig and ends with pork and lots of fat meals. For sure it´s not kosher nor halal. But it´s tasty as most people says.Some parts may seem to be weird. For example mixing blood or blood with liver. Or mixing the mixed blood and liver with pork fat and meat smashed to small peaces. Then you have to put the mix into intestines. Off course you have to clean them first :-). After filling... continue reading
Last winter I had an amazing trip to East Nusa Tenggara, Flores Island, Indonesia. The trip was mainly for diving and to see the biggest lizard on earth, Komodo Dragon. Komodo is the biggest living lizard on earth with ancestors that date back more than 100 million years. It looks like a dinosaur and actually holds up a vulnerable conservation status. It’s not just the mega lizard or the underwater life that is jaw-dropping, the culture is so pretty and the people are remarkably humble.... continue reading
