Chaz C.
September 10, 2017

Our guide, Dan, began our tour in Giurgiu, ending at our hotel in downtown Bucharest. During our one hour ride to Bucharest, Dan gave an in-depth lecture on current events affecting Romania, as well as recent history of the country, and relations with its neighbors. He also shared some sad and funny stories about growing up in post-Communist Romania. We toured the busy city, including the usual tourist stops: Village Museum and the Parliament Palace. He obviously loves his native land, but isn’t afraid (or is no longer afraid) to occasionally (and humorously) kick it in the shins. I wish we could have spent more time exploring Romania with Dan, but we had a plane to catch the next morning.
