  1. Your photos and wriintg are fascinating. However, I didn’t get, at least in the visuals, what you were discussing about how Maramures (all of Romania?) is developing in a worse way than Asia. Also, are you making fun of the elderly people? I am just asking because I don’t quite understand. I think your photos are amazing.
