Thursday - Escaped the city for a trip to the mountains and the village of Sinaia by way of a glass factory. This area is known for its beautiful glass work. Actually saw glassware being blown by hand. Amazing variety of styles including leaded glass and hand painted works. Got lots of stuff to bring home.

Hunting for treasures at the glass factory.

"King Carol" in front of his castle. Seriously, this is the summer castle of King Carol and Queen Elizabeth - the first monarchs of the united Romanian states.

Guys of the team with Jim Sorrels.

"One for all and all for one" - "Stylish" shoe coverings must be worn in the castle. This is the only picture we were able to take inside the castle.
