Lunch break at the Odaja
A small metal ring with legs hangs on the side of a tree, next to the Odaja. It has started to snow. There are 20 of us, and we’re hungry from the hike. Whilst Mariuca makes fire with no fuss, the others produce sausages, onions, bread and salt from their small rucksacks. Enough polenta is cooked on the open fire to feed 40, and within 20 minutes we all eat and drink mulled wine. The group catering deserves 10 out of 10 for elegance and efficiency.
