From Bucharest

Set clock to 02:30 this morning and managing surprisingly well so far. This is a different hotel from the ones we have stayed in before and has Wifi, which will not be available in Neptun. Bucharest is a little smarter each time I visit but it's still a sprawl. Fewer stray dogs. The Pre-war elegance remains in odd buildings, but there is more of what I think of as Stalinist Classical-Dystopic, all proportion no fabric. And sheer mess. But it holds together.

Tonight a meal, tomorrow a five hour bus ride down hot highways.Cry of gulls outside, long way inland. This from my phone.
