I took a bus from Budapest at 4:45 am and it took all day to get to Bucharest. We pulled into the station at 8:30 pm and got caught in a rainstorm on the way to my hostel. I headed back to the old town after securing my umbrella. I found an interesting area with pleasant architecture.
Unfortunately aside from the plethora of restaurants, there was an excess of strip clubs, massage parlors, and other lurid forms of entertainment. I pretty much don’t give a bugger about what the city has to offer since I’m more interested in focusing on working on my blog and some serious introspection. I was already here once before for a visit and saw Dracula’s Castle and the rest of the Bucharest essentials.
After a day of crap food and excess of time stuck in a seat, I kept my spirits up with good movies and books.
Here you see a fountain that took a cue from the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. In the evening, the fountains would dance in time to the music.
