As a part of the dares list from Tom Baker I decided to pick the lovely
Post a picture of yourself with a person you would not normally approach (a rabid football fan, a neon raver, a crazed cat woman, etc) or post a picture of the place you live in from the tallest place in town (building, mountain, hill, etc).
I currently live in Cluj-Napoca, Romania (for those unaware on the positioning, check Google maps). The city is ancient, built before the Christian times by tribes of Tracian heritage called “Daci”. They were shepards and warriors and they manage to fend off the Roman Empire from 44BC to 106AD when they were conquered by the Roman general Traian. The city was then called Napoca and you can see it on the old map here:
They were assimilated and the country was divided into 3 major regions (Transylvania – NV, Vallachia – S and Moldavia – NE). It was bigger than the current Romania and with subsequent wars and the assimilation of other nations (Turks, Serbians, Germanic nations and Hungarians) we came to be what we are today. The ancient parts of the city are still preserved in the center town (you can see old housing from 2000 years ago) and we kept a lot of latin words in our own language and even some really old Dacic words . This is the city today as seen from a few different points (some are from my house which is on top of one of the hills surrounding it) and some are from a hill inside the city.
