coffee, anyone?

We all kind of gave up hoping that the old commercial area of Lipscani (in Bucharest, Romania) can come to live again at full steam, as it used to, once-upon-the-time.
The sight of the old buildings left to decay was able to drown into depression even the most optimist of the people. But now, what a surprise! The old Lipscani is getting a new vibe and a new and cool face: elegant and trendy coffee houses at each corner, new pavement and, as an overall, lots of rebuilding takes place... Hurray! Now we have some cool places for coffee-with-the-girls also in Bucharest!The photos were taken on an early warm Sunday morning.
