November 1: Day of the Dead.
It’s Ziua Mortilor, or Day of the Dead, in Romania. While yesterday was meaningful to us, today is meaningful to our Romanian friends. They are gathering this evening around the graves of their loved ones to remember them with candles and flowers. We had an invitation to go to the cemetery with some of our friends, but two sick kiddos up past their bedtime and me hobbling around a dark, rocky hill on crutches didn’t seem the wisest of moves. I had really been looking forward to seeing what Ziua Mortilor is all about, so my husband (my hero!) bundled up, grabbed the camera, and drove to Cimitirul Central to take some photos for me.
