Bucharest in photos

A while ago, somebody wanted to rent a floor in a residence situated a few blocks from my place.

But, it seems, he was undecided what clients to chase - Romanians or Anglophile foreigners - and, I suppose, he gave himself finally to the idea of appealing to both, while making a small economy. So, he began his "to rent" message in English, but finished it in Romanian. The picture above is the unhappy, yet funny, result; enjoy.

PS: I'd still say, based on my experience, that Romanians - and especially the Romanian youth - speak better English than many other European nations.

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
