Romania - Bucharest (Part 1)

After a 12 hour train ride with slow and troublesome custom boarder checks, I have arrived in ROMANIA!!!

I arrived at the Gara de Nord train station at around 6am in the morning and was staving. I went around searching for food around the train station and to my amazement, the people here drink beer at 6AM!!! It was the first culture shock and I thought Ireland was bad. You guys should totally check out Eastern Europe in the future, anyway I decided to have KFC for breakfast as it the only place serving breakfast menu, even the famous McDonalds doesn't even have a breakfast menu. BOO~

After having breakfast, we were like LOST again, cause we printed out directions from the old website of the hostel and we went to the old location of the hostel, luckily we made it to the new location and we were so tired from the train ride that we took some hours to rest in our room.

We got out for lunch at La Mama which was recommended by the hostel.

After lunch we roam around the city and the place looked like Thailand, Bangkok to me. The buildings looked so old without paint and also there were mixture of new buildings with the old ones.

The streets of Bucharest (Bangkok look and smell alike)

After a few hours walk in the city, I went back to the hostel to crash cause of the hot weather (it was near 30 degrees and I was melting) and the lack of sleep in the train due to the interruption that we got from the custom checks. 
So what you think??? Doesn't it remind you of BANGKOK???

When i was studying in UK - went on the inter-rail holidays throughout europe. unfortunately then, the iron curtain was still there. never had the opportunity to visit the soviet block countries. visited all the other though. those where the most enjoyable 2 months of my life.
