The Black Vulture returned to Dobrogea after more than half a century

When we were preparing to say that for Dobrogea, 2021 was the year of the flamingos, the end of the year brought us another big surprise.

If until this year there were sporadic reports of birds in transit, now is the first time that a Black Vulture chooses to stay longer...

During the communist era, when Romania's president was Nicolae Ceausescu, there was the slogan: "No meal without fish." At that time, this ad was on many blocks of flats, at intersections or in shops, and we were all urged to eat fish. Obviously, I thought it was a joke, and that nobody would ever eat fish at all meals. Oh, well! I have found out that there were times when the inhabitants of...

The traditional Dobrudjan household, a rare sight nowadays

The butter churn, the wooden vessel for water, big wooden spoons, barks, traditional napkins, the dowry chest, gossamer fabrics, and many other things long forgotten in this era of technology, were always present in the traditional Dobrudjan household.
