Romania Day 2-the hotel,the currency

I seem not be able to manage to arrive in my blog very often. I have too many other things to do, all the time!
Anyway, thank you for being patient with me!
So Romania Day 2 has got so many photos, about 300 and blogger is so slow in uploading them, that I decided to make it into smaller parts.
So for today here are some photos of the hotel Rin Grand we were staying at. It was huge and very luxurious for the cheap price we paid.I had to ask for a change of room though as the first one we were given was too small, with two single beds and a blocked view. So after a minor gentle complaint we were given a bigger much more comfortable room with a better view and a kingsize bed!
 We could see a series of greenhouses from our hotel which was ten minutes away from the city centre.

 The breakfast was very good, we could choose from a great variety and could refill our plates. We didn't need to eat out afterwards for lunch and as dinner was included in the price we paid we simply saved a lot of money. Yes I ate all that!
Romania has the RON or lei. One euro was 4,37 lei which was very good for us poor Greeks. We felt we had a strong currency in our purses and everything seemed much cheaper than in Greece.
 The money looked as if it was made of plastic and you could see through some of its parts.

More about Day 2 in Romania in the next blogpost.
