Friday, 03.05.19, Bucharest – Tulcea

Day 11 for the records. Cosmin and Marco Polo warned me of the rather aggressive traffic in Bucharest. But my plans to reach the city center with the most points of interest evolved like this:
Walk to the nearest stop of the hop on – hop off buses. But they start only after 10 am.
Cycle to that. Hmmm
Cycle to the main boulevard and see what happens. Great choice.
Nothing special happened with the traffic and I cycled safely all morning.

Bucharest was a busy place but much better organized than I had imagined. Plenty of impressive buildings and squares, restaurants and cafes, parks and churches.
Time to move on and head for one of the main targets of the journey:
The Delta of the mighty river Danube.

Day 10 for the records. Breakfast at Cosmin’s parents and small talk as good as possible. His father guided me to a free parking ground and then drove me to the area where Cosmin wanted to meet me for coffee.
Intense conversation about the world and God. About the truth and money. We found completely common ground, that Jesus is Lord and this makes even sense from a logical point of view.

Left for Bucharest about lunch time and had the welcome tailwind.
Found the planned Restaurant Parking area, but looked for a supermarket parking lot nearer to the city center. Google Maps guided me through increasing traffic safely to a Penny Market. Found a spot near a side wall, went for some little shopping, was not noted and stayed there all night (again).

Not much more to say about this day, I left only at lunch time and after arrival went shopping, asked a young lady for a coffee with Wifi. She offered to guide me to it, it was literally around the corner. She did not have time to have a coffee, unfortunately.
But I had time to organise photos, do some posting and enjoy myself.

I say quite a challenge how to sightsee in that busy place. But tomorrow will be another day.
