Calin Kruse - Maria | Romania

Maria is a 72 year old woman who lives in a small village in the South-West of Romania, right next to the Serbian border. Despite of her age, she keeps an enormous 6-room-house – that she inhabits after the death of her husband all alone – animals and several fruit and vegetable gardens.

Her day begins at 6 in the morning with washing and milking the cow before sending it off to the fields, and ends at midnight cleaning the kitchen. She spends a majority of her day feeding and cooking for the animals - she has some chickens, turkeys, a pig, a dog, three sheeps, some geese and many cats. Besides, the house has two adjoining gardens that Maria cares for.

Maria never traveled. Only once she went to a circus to Bucharest, as she was 17 years old.
