Bucharest was known as "the Little Paris"
before the Communist takeover.
It was about 25 degrees, and foggy every day. Only one day out of three weeks did the fog lift.
About 3:00 in the afternoon.
Notice all buildings max at seven stories due to earthquakes.
The Russians decided that to make Bucharest a great city, it needed a river running through it. So they built one. There are no real rivers there.
| This is one of the Embassy mansions that surrounded our hotel. There were several in the area.
Every morning we walked past several dozen armed guards.
