I spent 4 days in Bucharest. Interesting place? Although just becoming part of the European Union, it looked like it was stuck in the 1920s. Just 15 minutes outside of the capital, there are people burning garbage in a can, old women with thatched sweepers cleaning up leaves, horse drawn buggies with produce...
I stayed in the Sofitel, not far from the airport and arrived on a Thursday and stayed the weekend. My only business was on Friday outside of the city. I managed to pickup some kind of viral sinus infection when I was there that lasted six weeks.
Food and Beer? FANTASTIC! and CHEAP! Becks 16.9oz. beers were 0.75-1.00 US Dollars! Have a look at the greek salad and lamb chops I had with 2 beers and 2 glasses of a Transylvanian Sauvagnon Blanc. I would definately like to go back in a year or so.
