Day 22, the mud volcanoes

23 May

We’ve been cycling for a one day trip today and went to the mud volcanoes 35 km away from Buzau with our cyclist friend Dan, who took us to really nice spots on the way. The weather was supposed to be stormy again but he gave it a try and took a day off to come with us and make us discover the beautiful area of Buzau. For some reason, it didn’t rain and we stayed dry the whole day. It’s been a while!

We left in the morning and rode across villages leading to hills and small mountains next to Berca, where lay the mud volcanoes. As Dan is more of an offroad guy and knows the region very well, he took us through small paths “pour les connaisseurs” -as romanians like to say :)- in forest and hills, then we stopped in the mud volcanoes to have lunch and take fancy pictures.

For the first time during the trip, we are light enough to cycle on non tarmac roads and experiment cycling our machines in dust, mud, sand and rocks. On the way down, we stopped in an orthodox monastery surrounding the whole Buzau area where there are still a few nons taking care of the place.

Here are some pictures we took on the volcano itself.
