4TH GRADE FIELD TRIP: PELES CASTLE
Yesterday, Lisa and I took my 4th graders (of which Mikie is a part) to Peles Castle in Sinaia, Romania. Unlike a typical US field trip, we rode the subway to the train station (gara de nord) and then took a train for 2 hours. It is a beautiful former "summer home" of Romania's former Royal Family. Currently, it is under ownership dispute (as are many other properties here due to communism and the way they took over land) and no one knows for sure how it'll end.

We had a great time and I hope you can "enjoy it" a little through our photos!
