just came back from the 40 day memorial service of an old dear friend and as the weather turned bad again I thought of continuing with my Romania trip posts.
Again thank you to all those who read and comment or just read me.There are people from Europe, the States and even as far as Alaska and India!Amazing!Blogland brings us closer!
So on our first morning in Bucharest and after the hearty breakfast we got on the bus for a tour of the city. The weather was bad, cold and rainy but nothing could stop us. It was good that we were only 50 people so we could move fast.
The tour took us all around the city and as it was raining heavily we couldn't get off the bus but just heard the guide talking to us and took rainy pictures from inside the bus. Still Bucharest was magical with wide streets like Barcelona and beautiful old buildings.
It was funny spotting beautiful colourful buses in all the darkenss and familiar Greek brands like the bank behind the bus! I know them, I have a huge loan there!!!!!
We saw lots of similar buildings like this one built by the old regime of Romania but unfinished. The country has no money to finish them any more. This one was finished with glass additions.
The Central University Library with King Carol I statue.
To a museum...but more about that in the next blogpost!.
