I had an unexpected layover in Bucuresti (as they call it) due to the fact that all organized transportation disappears once you get south of the Carpathian Mountains. The bus schedule posted online doesn't exist anymore and I found out the frustrating way. I got chased by stray dogs that are supposedly descendents of Nicolae Ceauşescu's army of Communist Super Dogs. I slept. I lucked into finding a guy who runs a seemingly sketchy, but in the end, very respectable taxi service to Ruse, Bulgaria.

I took no pictures of this place.

Bucharest has the second biggest administrative building in the world behind the Pentagon. They also have a fake river.

How far did this pack of wild dogs chase you?
