After a few days we managed to get to Internet and bring you all up to date what we've been up to (well most of it anyway :-) ).  It was unbelievably hard to get an Internet cafe with CD ROMs in this city.  Roxy's home town was heaps good - it's like we are on a different planet here.
From Sunday lunch time we have been on the seaside here in Romania (Black Sea). The weather has been very warm (even hot). I don't want to rub it in to all those in Australia (especially Canberra). :-) We are both tanned after only a couple of days here (and yes we have been using sun protection). The beaches are sandy and really packed. I took some photos early in the morning and there were already a lot of people. Around lunch time you cannot find a spot to sit on the beach. It was good to have Roxy as she knew all these tricks. On Sunday night we went to one of the resort areas called "Neptune" where they have night markets and rides. You can compare it to Thredbo (where everything is alive in winter) but here it is the case in summer. It was some experience. So after going to sleep around 1am on Sunday morning, then waking up at 4 to leave for seaside, we were totally wasted and went to bed about 11pm.
On Monday we caught up with some friends from Roxy's home town. We were together at the beach. It was pretty much a bludge day where we lazed around. Here we went on the "Banana" where they pull you with a boat and try to turn you over (well it succeeded). That was great fun (see photos).
And today (Tuesday) in the morning was the same, a bludge day. In the morning we went to the beach. At lunch time Roxy and her mum had Manicure and Pedicure - AGAIN!!! In the afternoon we went to see the city (see photos).
Tomorrow we are leaving on a 1000km journey to Croatia. That will be fun and we are all looking toward it.
