When in Rome … When going to the Romanian seaside make sure to try this local pastry called “plăcintă dobrogeană”, a sort of cheese pie which – take my word for it – is very very delicious. I for one have followed my own advice and savored the one slice in today’s photo at a beach restaurant in Mamaia.
For today, a toy from my childhood. I was pretty excited when I saw this, I didn’t think I’ll see one still around. I guess some people take better care of things than me 🙂
Fresh bread made by some friends of mine who are training to become bakers.
It happened quicker than I thought 🙁 I didn’t take any pictures today, despite carrying my heavy camera with me all day long. I guess I just didn’t feel inspired. But I wanted to post something for the day, so I chose a photo taken a few days before, on July 1st, while I was taking off from San Francisco. In the photo you can see part of downtown, the portion of Bay Bridge up to the Yerba Buena Island and of course the famous San Francisco Bay.
Chilling out late at night in the Old Town of Bucharest we made a new friend. He adopted us quickly and started defending us by barking at everyone who passed nearby 🙂 He came out a bit blurry because light was low and he kept moving.
Not only do I like to travel, I also like to read about other people traveling. I like books that manage to give one a sense of place, a sense of being there, books that make you want to take the next plane or train or car and go somewhere. My favorites authors are Paul Theroux and Bill Bryson. Today’s photo shows part of my travel library.
