La Comarca? no, Maramures / The Shire? Maramures!

Pel que conec de la biografia de JRR Tolkien, l'hi hauria meravellat l'ordenat paisatge rural de Maramures encara no tocat (falta poc) per la maquinaria agrícola.

 

Maramures és la regió de Romania més al nord de tot, i fortament aillada per les muntanyes. Fins fa poc era un reducte de la vida tradicional de pagès com pocs a Europa. Desgraciadament s'està perdent a marxes forçades per la modernització portada pels emigrants que tornen. Així hi tot, encara hi queden parts que semblen literalment anclades al segle XIX.

 

--------------------------

 

Knowing JRR Tolkien's love for rural old-style and pre-machinery countryside, he would have loved this Maramures fields, like their imagined ones from Hobbiton...

 

Maramures is a unique place in Europe. It's located in the north of Romania. A place were you could travel to the XIX Century; a very traditional and charming countryside and villages. But sadly this is changing everyday, becoming more modern. This could be good for the people of Maramures in a way, but it's sad to see that maybe they will lose a great deal in the proces, specially their beautiful wooden villages and traditions.
