Yesterday was pretty low key including a tour of the parliament building. I think the best way to describe that building is architectural gluttony. I'll just say that we only toured about 7% of the building and it took about an hour. They also take your passport upon entry so that was a bit unnerving. One other interesting fact though is that if you would like to rent a room for a special event it will cost about 2,000 euros. What a deal!
The rest of the day breezed by, and mom and I had a late snack at the out of the way restaurant with the big courtyard that was the first inn in Bucharest along the trade route. It was closed for many years, but lucky for us it opened again just 2 weeks ago.
It’s the next morning and time to go on to the next destination, Sofia, Bulgaria. We had to get up bright and early to get to the airport to take Tarom Airlines and try to spend the last of my leu. We got to the airport in plenty of time by good old driver Tony, but unfortunately the airport would only accept euros so I have some leu that I’ll be taking home. I think I have finally finished my presentation which is a good thing because I am presenting first thing in the morning. Now I just have to go over it a few times and make sure it fits into my allotted time of 30 minutes.
Wish me luck!
