Trip to Romania

While I was in Gyula, I borrowed Monika’s bicycle and went riding to Romania. Gyula is a border town, so it was a very short ride. I went through the border town on the other side and rode around for about an hour. I took a few photos below.




If you have seen the movie Borat, you should note that the impoverished sequences showing Kazakhstan were actually photographed in Romania. I could see why. Below was a horse cart I passed outside of town which was clearly still being used as functional transportation.



Let me check my watch here. Yes, it is the twenty-first century.

    any luck translating those gas prices? might make the horse drawn cart make a lot of sense.

    The New Romania Lei is 2.4 to the dollar. Figure the lowest of these prices is 3.23 RON to the liter. That makes $1.34 per liter. $5.06 per gallon. That’s a little less than in Hungary.
