    Sisters in June – travelling by train and a wedding in Bucharest

    Almost a month since I last wrote on this blog…Time moves way to fast at the moment and I seem unable to face it.

In Bucharest, on Covaci street, a popular inn named “La Iordachi” (At Iordachi’s), was well known for its delicious sausages. One night, so the story goes, the kitchen ran out of one kind of sausage, so they mixed the ingredients left over, roll them into small sausage shaped patties, and grilled them on charcoal without the usual casing.
