Another awesome day. Romanian mountains are the bomb, people. This is Balea Lac, a teeny little glacial lake at the top of the Transfăgărășan Highway. We drove from the north "down" to the lake, rather than take the windy road. When we arrived, we couldn't see more than the fact that water was in front of us - it was completely clouded over. This was our experience for much of our Romanian trip. Still, we hiked straight up (it was gruelling, really) the mountain beyond the lake, in hunt of another lake of even greater beauty. Unfortunately, the clouds were just as thick up there and we couldn't see anything. Just... nothing. To our great relief it only rained a little. And then when we were standing in line for the tastiest thing I ate in #Romania
(polenta with salty cheese, barbecued), the clouds broke. I ran for it! No way I was going to miss the two freakin' minutes available to view the lake. I ran back, sent George away, and a few minutes after that it was solid fog again.
