The US State Department rates Romanian roads as "Poor." But really the surface is not that bad, it's the obstacles on them.
Here we have sheep in the road.
Cows in the road. (Our friend Christian is doing the dodging.)
Brides in the road.
Okay, only a bride. (In Romania, they have a superstition that when a bride is getting married, she shouldn't see any other brides. Seeing the groom anytime is fine.)
Haystacks in the road.

In some spots, the roads are as bad as they warned us. In the US, some of them would be called streambeds.
So few people own cars in Romania, everybody hitch hikes.
We picked up a couple of Orthodox sisters.
And a van full of chattering peasants.
On the way to Bucovina, we got to see the alpine wonderland of the Carpathian mountains.
