Bucharest. Dacia was the car manufactured in Romania during the communist regime. It was modeled after Renault 12. The first car was produced in 1969 and for the next 35 years the designed changed very little. It was discontinued in 2004. For many years my parents had one just like the one in today photo, in exactly this same ugly color. They used to be quite common 20 years ago but now I rarely see one on the streets of Bucharest.
Bucharest. Somehow my wanderings through Bucharest seem to end up in the same place, the Old Center, which in the last two years has become the number one spot for going out in the capital. In today’s photo we have Franceză (French) Street at night.
Bucharest. The bizarre looking balcony of a dilapidated house on Smârdan Street in the Old Center.
Bucharest. Even though my favorite season is summer I try to find peace with all the other seasons 🙂 and find activities that I enjoy doing for the rest of the year. For example fall marks the start of the theater season, a type of performing arts that I really love. My first try for this season was a play at the Comedy Theater, called “The Artificial Silk Girl” after Irmgard Keun, about a young German girl who moves from a small town to Berlin in the early 1930’s wanting to become a star. She ends up selling herself for food and housing, but in the end she’s saved by a shy, educated man whose wife left him. Not the type of subject that usually attracts me, but the actors, Delia Nartea and Alexandru Conovaru, were pretty good. The photo shows some of the posters at the Comedy Theater.
Brasov. Went to Brasov for a wedding ceremony which took place at this lovely church known as the Wooden Church of the Civic Center or Assumption of Our Lord Church. The surroundings were not much, they were quite depressing in fact, but the church looked beautiful in the light of the setting sun.
Bucharest. I only took four pictures today, which gives me little choice. I decided to go with the one above which shows the counter of a neighborhood bar.
