A Moment of Peace

A couple sleep on the overnight train from rural Maramureș County to the city of Cluj-Napoca in the north of Romania. It is a hot night and travelling is slow. Passengers shift restlessly on hard seats, rearranging their limbs into a comfortable enough position to fall asleep. Using each other as a pillow, for a moment these two find peace.
