Day 34: Bucharest

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Nov - 09 - 2010

0 km

After yesterday’s off day I was back in tourist mode, heading out to explore a bit of the city. Bucharest is difficult to describe. A mix of old churches, communist style buildings, and broad boulevards that makes you think of Paris.

The Parliament Palace is certainly build to impress but I somehow feel that these kind of places don’t have a big impact on me. I’m much more interested in normal people’s homes.

In the evening I once again met with fellow radio friend Andy at the very nice station he is building 30 km north of the city.

  2. What an adventure, so far! And the Parliament Palace is breathtaking! I remember seeing it featured on Top Gear once!
