wandering Bucharest

Big European cities don’t have much attraction for me. Bucharest is not nearly the best of the bunch.

But waiting on a flight to Turkey I made the best of it.

There are some big, green parks.

Lovely religious buildings.

Vlad the Impaler is one of the attractions.

A wannabe, Bucharest has an Arc. But it’s only about one third as large as the one in Paris.

Pizza is good in Romania. But they tend to undercook it.

Several things I really liked about Romania:

fast WiFi everywhere. I could even upload photos to Flickr.
• almost every Romanian I met spoke English (TV and films are in English here)
• taxi drivers were honest
• no money problems. They are proud to have their own currency, not Euro.
