Quote of the day

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia


Laura and I started Friday with our daily stair and walk the hall of our Hotel workout. We are hoping that this will counteract our new habit of dessert after lunch at Berlin pastry shop where we walk to every day. Wishful thinking I know. After breakfast we headed to the hospital to see our kids. Cleo was in much better spirits today and was back to her smiley self. Delia was a bit more fussy that usual, but after Coca applied some teething medicine she was much better. Laura took Marius on some walks around the hospital and he loved that. In fact, after he learned that by grasping her hand she would go almost where ever he wanted, he didn’t want to stop. While she was doing that I rocked with Luca and talked to Cleo. Friday afternoon we headed to Bran. We checked in to our charming villa, and then walk to town for dinner. Saturday, I took in the towns sites, read and napped while Dan and Laura visited Peles Castle. Dan made us a wonderful dinner of garlic chicken which we had with kiwi, bread and cheese. Sunday we headed to Brasov and saw the Black Church and did some souvenir shopping. On our way back to Barlad we stopped and bought some kurtis kolac, which I loved. It is sweet bread made into a long, hollow tube, rolled in honey, and then they add nuts, coconuts or cinnamon.
