Living in Nowhere, Europe
I was really amazed when I took these pictures some years ago. It was on the 7th of December 2008, I was driving from Budapest (Hungary) to Iasi (Romania) and I have seen this strange place in the mountains – I do not remember the exact location, but it is probably very close to Toplita (in Hungarian: Maroshévíz) or Gheorgheni (Hungarian: Gyergyószentmiklós) [both of them being situated in the Harghita (Hungarian: Hargita) county, Romania].
Of course you can see some fences in the pictures below, but you have to trust me: there were no other people living around that tent. There was no village, no anything – it was only that tent, and the person(s) living in it. And it was on the 7th of December. Do we see a hermit’s home? Dreamers can think about this, but reasonable people already know: no person that really has a home would stay on that place in mid-winter (however, the place seems to be very well cared for – see the decorations around the tent!).
And yes – it’s Europe, it’s the 21st century!
