The Autumn Fair of Calarasi 2013

The Autumn Fair of Calarasi, called in Romanian "Balci" is said to be the biggest from South of Romania, from Baragan. This Fair brings back memories from childhood; I used to go there with my family to buy fresh fruit or play. The Fair marks the beginning of autumn. As pictures feature, Roma craftspeople are attending it and display their products. I live very close to  the place where the fair takes place. A lot of inhabitants from Calarasi go to have a tour of the fair in the evenings, so streets of my neighbourhood are quite empty for one week.
