Porumb fiert

Romania 2007 (15) 023

What always used to amaze me was that I would see lots of people wandering around eating hot sweetcorn (porumb fiert) having bought a corn cob from one of these street vendors. It’s not such an amazing thing in and of itself, but by this point the temperatures were around 40°C every day! It was all I could do to summon the energy to buy ice cream, never mind something this hot!

This vendor is just outside the Dumbrava department store.
