Here's a short video about a guy who stays with a Romanian family in Transylvania who make pÃ¡linka. PÃ¡linka is a clear strong fruit brandy which Hungarians make, and I didn't know until I watched this video that Romanians make it, too.
Another point I want to make is that the guy in the video acts like the typical dickhead American expat. He is totally clueless about the local language and culture, and he looks miserable and out of place for the most part. If he had learned a few key phrases in Romanian, it could have smoothed things over a lot between him and the family he stayed with. He just sort of cringes when encountering a foreign language and a foreign culture like most Americans do.
Hmm, I guess you're right, although I'm sure that there are small differences in how they make it in each country.
