The past few years, I've had occasion to travel to Bucharest, Romania for work. Each time I'm there, of course, there is always a great adventure to be had. I usually make my way to the city centre to visit their exquisite paleo museum and take care of a few things at the consulate.

This photo is from their central park which lines the greenbelt in the consultate district. Many times, I've walked through history entering this deceptively peaceful park that divided the population in their final push to free themselves from communism in 1989. Timing is everthing it seems, as I was also there to see the exchange between the Americans and Russians when Kosovo separated. Beautiful, delicious, cold and dangerous. Bucharest (Bucharesti) is quite a city.
