Brad (ROU)- Paula (ROU)- Burlusi (ROU)
July 27, 2014
Last night wedding last till 6am. Graham and Kenneth slept ok despite the continuous party music outside. Young didn’t sleep well though. We had our instant cappuccino and hit the road.
Back on the highway we heads toward Sibiu, attempt to find a good restaurant and try some Romanian Tripe soup for lunch.
When we were driving through Transylvania the traffic all of a sudden stopped. A nice local gentlemen named Andy tells us there is an accident happend 1km up the road. There is nothing we can do except get out of the car and wait. Potentially we can route back and go up to the Dracula Bran castle but that will involve a huge backtrack. We waited for over 45mins to an hour. And the traffic finally start moving.
En route we stopped by a small kiosk along the roadside. There was a lovely Romanian lady selling cheese, honey and other local products. We bought a cheese as snack ;-)
We stopped for lunch in a small town called Paula. We ordered the Romanian tripe soup, grilled mici and pork neck and drink Bergenigen beer. It was absolutely delicious.
Probably because it is Sunday, the traffic along the main road to Bucharest is super jammed up from Sunday vacationers going back to city. All the truck drivers are going crazy. Young saw some of them bought beers at stops and start drinking it while starting the engine. It was getting late we deicded to find a campsite. Through our useful ACSI camping app we found a quaint little campsite called “Comarnic Dragos” around the Burlusi area. It’s 30 Lev per tent and the place is nice. Right after we set the tent up heavy rain starts pouring down. The entire night it rains nonstop. And we are glad that inside our tent is bone dry.
Young again can’t sleep tonight. The entire night all the dogs are barking like maniacs and fighting plus roosters start croaking at 3am. This is true rural Romania horse carriage is still widely used as transportation.
