To the right is a 19th Century house built in a "Frankish Style" from the Banat area of Romania.
I'll post more photos on the Flickr site maybe tomorrow. There is an especially strange looking "hobbit house" that was built in the 1800s but is based on the basic Neolithic mud huts which housed people for centuries.
Now we come flying back to the 21st Century! After walking around this wonderful historic site, we decided to go to a nearby park to sit on a park bench and have some beverages. I see this scene:
What have we got here? Looks like some TV people assaulting a group of middle-aged women. So I had to take a picture of them! Little did I know that they saw me and we became their next victims, er, contestants.
The walked over to us and began speaking Romanian until I said Hi. Then the host of this little quiz show on the biggest TV station in the country (who apparently is also a weather man) switched to English. Because I was from out of the country, I couldn't participate, but I could help Justin with the questions, which if we answered correctly would get us a prize - a toaster!
So, for the net four hours we walked all over Bucharest carrying that damned toaster - no wonder people were giving us funny looks!
