BUCHAREST IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

Post available in English and Romanian
O data pe an, orasul meu se umple de lumina si ofera imagini spectaculoase. Edilii orasului incearca sa compenseze cumva pentru multele probleme de care ne lovim. Pun o masca deasupra orasului si matura mizeria sub covor. Tactica frunctioneaza si cel putin o data pe an vedem Bucurestiul intr-o lumina diferita. Luminitele se vor stinge in curand, asa ca e pacat sa nu le vedeti si voi. Once a year, my hometown lights up and shines offering spectacular views. The town officials try to compensate for the many issues we are facing by putting on a mask and dusting the dirt under the rug. The thing is … this really works and each year we see this town in a better light (pun intended). So let me guide you through Bucharest before the pretty lights turn off.

RHODES, DAY 3

Post available in English and Romanian
E pacat sa ajungeti in Rodos si sa nu explorati o parte dintre locatiile fenomenale pe care insula le ofera. Am inceput usor azi, cu o vizita pe zidurile orasului. Turul incepe din orasul vechi, de la Castelul Marelui Maestru, chiar din curtea interioara. Daca veti dori sa explorati Rodosul atunci aveti grija sa va incaltati corespunzator, multe dintre strazi sunt pavate cu pietre de mare asa ca adidasii sunt de departe cea mai buna varianta. Plimbarea pe zidurile cetatii dureaza cam o ora; veti avea parte si de cateva peisaje fabuloase. Aveti insa mare grija, zidurile nu sunt imprejmuite de bare de protectie, iar sfatul meu e sa nu va aventurati pe margine pentru un selfie spectaculos. Turul e deschis doar intre orele 12 si 15 (2 euro), si cel mai bine e sa aveti la voi apa si o palarie, vor fi arme importante in lupta cu razele soarelui.  It’s a shame to come to Rhodes and not explore the phenomenal locations offered by the island. We started with something easy today: a walk on the town walls. The tour starts from the old city, right in next to the Grand Master’s Palace. If you want to explore the city, please wear proper shoes, many of the streets are paved with stones from the sea and sports shoes with a thicker sole are the best choice. The walk on the walls takes about one hour and you can see some beautiful sights. Be careful though, the walls are not surrounded by protection bars, and you should not come near the edge for a daring selfie. The tour is open only between 12 and 15 (2 euros) and its best to take with you a hat and water, these are important weapons in the fight with the sun.
