INTO THE CARPATHIANS
"Poienile de Sub Munte hides at the end of a long shallow valley, and, although lacking pavement of any kind to stave off the mud, the square wood houses with dull metallic hipped roofs and stacks of firewood along the exterior walls appear neat, sturdy, and warm. Brightly colored clothes flap on lines, bucking the bleak grayness of the day, but getting no drier in the pouring rain."
