It's said that you should never watch either sausage or laws being made. Well, here's sausage. As they do it in the Old Country. Starting with a live pig. Now, anyone got something comparable for laws? [more inside]

Explore around this site a bit. Lots of interesting, non-touristy travel pictures of rural life in Romania, by a couple who spent a year there. The website is not graphically sophisticated, but is very usable and easily understandable, and loads quickly. A nice example of non-web-oriented people using the web to share interesting stuff with the world.

"Then, like pushing some endless condom onto Tin Man's penis, they prepare for making sausage."

I don't think I've ever read a better description of anything.

Transylvania is a lovely name. Beyond the woods. Montenegro, too. Black mountain. But they're the sort of name others give a place.

Pictures of someone doing that to, say, Strom Thurmond? That would be interesting. Vlad of Transylvania would have enjoyed it. And I once saw something like that caught on video, also in Romania, though they were making something other than sausages.

When I was younger I was always fascinated by my Uncle's small backyard smokehouse. He would often make blood pudding. I haven't had it since I was a kid, but I remember enjoying it.

I once toured a sausage factory. Before I went, I was certain that I'd never eat mortadella or salame again after witnessing the process up close, but it ended up being so fascinating and clean and non-disgusting that I had no problem with it. It's actually very interesting to see how it's done, and how the prosciutto is aged using a mixture of high-tech equipment and human expertise.
I think it would be much more disconcerting to watch laws being made.
