"Gabriel Hanganu, known as the "bear tamer," snuck a kiss from his fiancée, Anca Sabau, who huddled for warmth beneath hanging bearskins. In the Trotus Valley of Romania, troupes of men, women and children wearing bearskins descend on homes — ostensibly to chase away bad spirits, but also to make merry. @dianazeynebalhindawi spent a few frigid days photographing the bears as they performed in the village square, wandered at night, and occasionally made housecalls. This #nytweekender, we'll be sharing more of @dianazeynebalhindawi's photos of Romania's dancing bear troupes, which were featured on the @nytimes #lensblog.
