Bucharest, glad to be back!

I have said, re doing these old post has brought lots of memories and good cheers to me and this is awesome. I realise some of these posts have been overlook by my readers as they were in my early blogging life. I had good times in Bucharest and been to it like 7 times in the last 9 years; this is again Bucharest, glad to be back!

This is becoming routine, coming to Bucharest that is.  Until 2011, I have never visited Romania and then bang an explosion of visits. Always welcome.  This trip was easy going by AF from Nantes to Paris CDG to Bucharest Henri Coandâ airport. Once there, I take a taxi Meridien to my hotel. Only that it was not the usual Ramada one this time it was a Pullman by Accor. 

The  taxi ride was nice, took my coupon off a machine for the taxi, and I always take the Meridian waiting for you outside or arrange ahead online. webpage: http://www.meridiantaxi.ro/

I got to my nice Pullman , this is my chain ACCOR of France, wonderful always anywhere. very nice big rooms bathrooms and plenty of restaurant from the nice chic Aspérge bar to the steakhouse Barbizon, and the breakfast brasserie Paris -Bucharest. Excellent service , prompt, nice, many amenities too much for me to use, as was in and out always. webpage: https://all.accor.com/hotel/1714/index.en.shtml

I spent 3 glorious nights here and went on to eat at the La Placinte Moldavian cuisine restaurant with a wooden tray of pork kebaks, potatoes, salad, and compote or drain fruit drink of red fruits sweet and nice down with Ursus local beer was excellent.  Very nicely decorated Inside and nice friendly service.  I went to the Str. Nicolae Caramfil nr. 49. I have a post on restaurants in Bucharest so just post the webpage here: https://laplacinte.ro/ro/pages/restaurante/2/

Another time out of hotel I went to the La Iancu restaurant just outside Bucharest in Otopeni where the airport is located, but a nice town. The service was very nice, and the food with the big veal steak fries and beers Tuborg was nice indeed. I have a post on restaurants in Bucharest so just post the webpage here: https://laiancu.ro/

I had my usual walks around the Romexpo exhibition center. And did my walk and drive up to the University Romano American by the romexpo area, this is a private school US-Romania cooperation. 

Also, the impressive House of the Free Press, old communication palace that I passed by so many times! The locals always show it to me!
