Long weekend in Brasov; Altes Land & apples

This will be a short summary of the last 2 weekends. One week ago I went to Brasov. Alex was there on holidays (driving) and I flew on Fri and came back on Mon evening. It was a super nice weekend. The weather was great - around 28C, sunny and warm. We stayed both in Alex's apartment (as you can see on the pic we were "camping" - since we didn't manage to camp together this summer, this was something to compensate ;-) and at Alex's dad's place.

We walked around the city, went to one spot on the hill close to Tampa to see the city from above:

We took care of Alex's dad's animals, chopped wood for grill (guess who cut a finger??) and also had a grill evening with Paul and his girlfriend.
The apples and grapes from Gelu's garden are super yummi!!!

On top of that, we went jogging around Tampa and met one Swedish guy from my ex-plant in Brasov!!! It was a surprise to see a jogging person there who happened to be someone familiar...
I also met Alex's grandpa who invited me (Alex was a driver this evening) for some home made cherry liquor. Mums!

This past weekend we went biking in Altes Land (on the other side of Elbe; sort of behind Airbus plant). I've been planning to do it for a while now and since this weekend we had such a great weather, we decided to go there on Saturday. The trip got delayed by some hours since we had a little unplanned event - namely both of us left the apartment thinking that the other one had house keys... Oh well. Hausmeister doesn't exist on Saturday so we had to call some key-emergency. A guy came after 45min, it took him 5 sec to open the door. Don't ask about the bill...

Anyway, we went to Altes Land and biked around apple fields. So many apples!!!!!! Other fruit too but it is really amazing!!! At the end of the trip I really wanted to have a good apple pie but didn't get one which was so good. I guess someone needs to teach people how to make a good apple pie. Having such good and many apples...

Sat evening we had home made pasta dinner at Sandra's & Hans'. It was great!! At the end we were playing cards and stayed here until 04AM!!! Wow!! Sunday was a bit slow, as you can imagine ;-)
