On one of the days of SARM’s Perseid camps
in the hot summer of 2020
(Runcu Stone, July 24),
Valentin Grigore photographed
the constellation Ursa Major aka the Great Bear,
nicknamed the Big Dipper
or the Great Chariot in folklore.

On one of the hot days that followed
(Bucharest, September 13, 2020)
I went to the Beer Chariot,
the most famous restaurant of this kind in Bucharest
(founded in 1869 in a superb building).

After a few beers,
only the solar reflections
could help me return home,
while I thought that
the Great Bear
should be called
the Great Beer.
