I'm Not Even Supposed To Be Here Today

... street art which kept me entertained. I was keen to rent a bike since this is one of the few places where traffic is quiet enough for me to navigate safely, but couldn't actually find a place. Better luck next time.

For the first time in mainland Europe, I walked into a mini mart that did not stock beer. In Romania. One of the most geographically eastern countries in Europe. At dinner, I accidentally purchased alcohol free beer. It was all they had. I didn't even realise. I'm rather shocked.

... four hours and paid about $15 (CDN) each. While Liviu speaks great English, we've noticed that English isn't so well known here, even with young people, compared to other places we've visited in Europe. It could be because Timisoara doesn't appear to be a popular tourist destination the way other areas in Romania, like Transylvania, may be.

Liviu began the tour by giving us a brief history lesson about Romania and explained that ...

BL #28: Visit a Romanian Construction Site

... road construction. As a result, we needed to hoof it about three or four blocks to the hotel, basically over dirt roads.

We were shocked at the level of construction taking place in Timisoara - it wasn't just a few streets that were torn up, but block after block of roads and sidewalks completely ripped up, in some cases with massive open trenches. Even more surprising was that two of the city's main plazas, Piata Unirii and ...
