ROMANIA: We tried to solve the mysteries of the western east or the eastern west but came home with things instead. East meets west there indeed. I started eating meat again when I was in Romania, it's like that. Beautiful, bewitching, amazing, more than we had imagined. We broke new borders and feel we can now go beyond.

RECALL: Things we passed on the first time around but which we never stopped thinking about.
