    I’ve been watching Maria Dmitronyak and her cooking shows. The Carpathian Mountains look like a very beautiful place to live. I live below the Wallowa Mountains in Eastern Oregon. It snows a lot and the growing season is short. The altitude of the valley is about 4000 feet with the mountains about 10,00 feet.

      I just saw one of her videos! It’s amazing! I would love to visit as it looks so beautiful in those mountains.

      I was smitten by that channel recently, too. I’m starting my evening TV agenda with one of her videos until I run out.

    I am in Montpelier, Vermont, USA. Our climate & topography are quite similar even though we are 45° N latitude & about 1600 feet elevation. Although Maria has a professional “day job” and is a well-known feminist, I believe that the portrayals accurately show rural life as it is now and has been in the past. Happy viewing.
