Snow Comes to Bucharest – Some Photos

Well, last night was an incredibly strange night ministering with the Gypsies at Mihai Bravu, and while I’m processing everything that happened, I thought I’d put up a simpler, easier post that I wrote earlier this week, and once my brain can process everything that happened, I’ll have a full report for you all.  If that seems mysterious and evasive, well it is, but I just don’t want to go into details yet until I know what to say.

So… last week, we finally got snow here in Bucharest and it’s “beginning to look a lot like Christmas.”  We didn’t know they were calling for so much snow, so we planned on bringing the kids out to see the Christmas lights near Universitate.  Well, we made it about 5 minutes before the wind and snow became too much for us, and we retreated to the insides of Mall Vitan to warm up.

After a half-hour of wandering around the mall, we were brave enough to head out again, so we took the kids out to walk around in the midst of the storm.  They had a lot of fun and got a lot of stares, being the only kids braving the snow and wind.

I wanted to head out for a day of photographing the newly-whitened city streets, but we’ve been busy with everything going on, so instead here’s a few quick snapshots:
