Photographer's Note

Continuing my trip in the past:
Not trusting even herself, in the crowd of the market, this old women checked every 10-15 minutes her (clear) handkerchief, where she kept the money. Opened the knots, looked, closed them, and put it back in a pocket under her dress.

Negreni - a village on the half way between Oradea and Cluj, in the West Carpathian Mountains. Where the valley of the river named Crisul Repede becames a bit larger, was place enough near/among the river to keep market.
I don't know if the tradition is continued till now, but there was once in a year a marketplace, three days long.
People - most from the surrounding villages, but also from over 100km - came with traditional products, most of them homemade. Also food, cereals, animals.
