Biking in Bucharest

A little bit of geometry with stairs and young bikers, in Bucharest, of course 🙂

White balerina

A ballerina and her fans. Or maybe some friends of Nils Holgersson in Romania, instead of Sweden.

Painted fruits

Painted apples and pears on a kiosk in Carol Park (Parcul Carol).

Pink (Monday Flowers # 37)

The beginning of a new beautiful summer week with pink flowers in Cismigiu Garden (Gradina Cismigiu).

Theme Day: Chimneis

Night view of working chimneys at CET Grozavesti assuring that people living in Bucharest will have hot water. You can find the rest of the entries for 1 July 2012 theme day here. Hopefully the site will  be back soon as in this morning shows an unfriendly error.

It’s Reading Time (Monday Flowers #35)

It looks like the perfect place for a lazy afternoon, with summer weather and yellow flowers everywhere around. I found this couple in the Botanical Garden enjoying some good readings.

Traditional Windows (@ Bucharest Village Museum #3)

Different types of wood windows from Bucharest Village Museum (Muzeul Satului Bucuresti). In the last picture is a door, integrating so well with the first ones.

Little Houses (@ Bucharest Village Museum #2)

Fairy tale houses at Bucharest Village Museum (Muzeul Satului Bucuresti), a must see if you come to visit Bucharest. In  Herastrau Park (Parcul Herastrau), this area keeps alive memories from years ago, with painted walls and many flowers.
