Living: Transylvania.

"Horses or oxen pulling sleighs occupied the roads,
and cows and geese wandered freely. The villagers were
dressed in smocks, sheepskins coats and fur hats, and
had rough leather strapped to their feet, with woollen
cloth wrapped around their calves held in place by
thongs; footwear truly from another age, as
worn by peasants depicted in medieval
illustrated manuscripts."
