About 40km past the 2000km I had my first flat tire. Not bad - I think these continental gator hard shells were a good investment.
Today was very hot. I think it reached 38degrees. But at least I was leaving Slatina. The roads were very good for the first 100km then they got a bit sketchy for the rest of the ride into Bucharest. It was a long ride day though I made good tıme barring the flat tire.
I arrived at 5:00pm and could not wait to see Cat again - this was to be our last stop together before she headed back to Canada with Anna and Gen. Bonus was that my good friend Juha is also in Bucharest
We all went out to a restaurant and I ordered the meat. Not I ordered meat. I ordered the various meat from the menu. I think it was due to the exhaustion and over heating but I could not actually finish the meal even though I had burned approximately 7800 calories during the day.
After the meal I needed to crash for awhile which Cat was more than happy to oblige. Later that evening Juha took us to a DJ party in the park. It seems Juha knows all the DJs in Bucharest and hostels. The party was on a patio on a small pond ın Carol Park overlooking the giant mausoleum. I was still extremely tıred so my night ended around 2:00 am. I think Gen and Juha stayed out until 5:30 in the morning. Crazy!
