On the road to Bucharest

We were leaving Transylvania and drove over the last mountains into Wallachia, the southern region of Romania, and to the capital Bucharest.

Slow traffic …

Winding road again
Gas was available everywhere in Romania
Edi speaks perfectly Romanian with his hands ūüėČ
Modern flat buildings at the outskirts of every town
But not everybody can afford them
Lunch break
Cheia Monastery

Cheia Monastery, a Romanian Orthodox complex of monks dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was destroyed by the Ottomans in 1770. The current monastery church was built of stone between 1835 and 1839. The murals were painted by Gheorghe Tattarescu in 1837.

Getting closer to Bucharest 
Relaxing evening at the camp site …
… with grilled veggies, potatoes and Romanian wine
