Tasha, in a little blue Renault following a mountain road near Haţeg. Getting lessons (in Romanian) on how to drive stick. "Ambreiaj Ambreiaj!!" (Their word for "clutch" sounds much more romantic. We are so unrefined in America.) Anyway, I can drive stick! I can now officially move to Europe!
I think just about every image portrayed in this entry will scare my mother, who is my #1 reader. Don't worry, mom. I'm coming home in 9 days.
