Catching up

I haven't done much lately other than sit inside and sew, so my travel and adventure blog was ignored for a while. However, last weekend spent in Bucuresti was an adventure in itself.

Apart from a trip into the dusty south, it also meant a trip way out of my comfort zone. Maybe I shouldn't present such an image of our great capital, but that city feels like it's in another country! I have never seen a dirtier, scarier, more neglected place. The city that in the 19th century was known as "little Paris" is now a heap of dog-invaded rubble, with beautiful, but badly neglected old buildings only slightly hinting to its former glory.

The purpose of my trip you can see here; I'm supposed to go again in June, but, although I loved the atmosphere of the fair, I'm not sure it's worth all that stress and discomfort.
But spring is here, it's sunny and warm, and the wandering shall soon resume!

Well, I agree, as sad as it can sound :-(
