stormy beaches

starting today a "storm" series. we experienced this last weekend at the seaside, and this Tuesday, in Ploiesti, the worst storm we've ever seen, a tornado almost. this at the seaside thou, was fun- nothing dangerous!

hectic preparing the Romanian language summer school. from time to time posting here. melting due to 40 Celsius degrees outside. hate airconditioning (makes me sneeze).

Museums Quartier?!

An unshakeable feeling of "this smells like Vienna" was with us for the few hours that we visited Sibiu/Hermannstadt. These MuseumsQuartier-like benches added to that. Anyways, from what we've been told, Austrian money helped to the renovation of Sibiu. One could tell that from the STRABAG signs present everywhere in the city.

Danube is the only highway

this story you have already read on my blog: it's about some money for some roads which will never be build. funny enough, again, the money were spent... so I guess for these Danube Delta people, in the village of Letea, the Danube is still the only highway.

Danube meets the Black Sea

my friends, this is one of the points where Danube meets the Black Sea. a place of a weird beauty.

living in colour

Danube Delta villages showed a poverty which we often encountered in our outer-city wanderings. still, in spite of this, they put colour on their houses. blue is the most traditional here.

A view from my bedroom

... and since everybody posts this kind of picture today, here is one from me too.


Ducks in Stadtpark. Lovely and funny.
I am off for the birds paradise today, that is the Danube Delta (in Romania). Looking forward for the scenery and pictures.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
