Greetings from Bucharest
It was a long day today. Michael and I missed each other at the airport in Bucharest, and spent a couple of hours separated by about 30 feet of wall.
That was silly--and nonsensical.
But we finally figured it out. I found him at a coffee shop. Goodness!
Tonight we searched for a bar called "The Opium Studio" but it was firmly locked and closed, clearly in an attempt to keep us separated from discovering true Romanian society. So we ended up at bar where everyone was playing dice and cards. We wanted to play too, but everyone had brought their own dice, and we had none.
Indeed, there were many wild dogs.
We tried a fantastic Romanian beer called Ursus. It was skunky and fantastic.
See you on the flipside.
