Leaving Chisinau, Moldova we hopped a one hour flight to Bucharest, Romania. A bus ride took us from the Bucharest airport to the train station (now our third time in the station.)

I'd eaten there once before, but back in September at an outside table, so I hadn't been downstairs before. I've forgotten the name of what I had, but it was roasted vegetables like aubergine, courgette and onion on a very thin base of filo pastry. I had Turkish ice cream for pudding, which was ...
