Then theses two weeks at Bucuresti are now done. I came here to meet my IT Team and also to be trained in our legacy production system.
Oh my god, technically speaking if you knew… I mean you never believe me 🙂 Understand what ever you want… Anyway It’s at least interesting let’s see how long I can manage with this… :p
If you have an American’s Iphone 3G which uses a sim hacking method (same as mine), you may be advised that it will not working here at Bucharest. I simply can’t connect to network. But hopefully, and I don’t really know why if you buy a sim card here, it’s working quite well. So Sim hack + sim from France == not working, you may change to sim hack + sim from Romania == works fine !??!!?!
Ok enough of geek topics, let’s talk about the city and people here. I were very lucky here at Bucharest because I only met nice people ! :p Really ! I mean in every places it should have some ugly guys but fortunately I didn’t met even one of them at Bucharest. My colleagues are all so nice, fun and also interesting guys. I learned a lot about my job. After the work we usedto go playing pool at the end of this week, and kidding about theses bard-maid… I don’t want to open long description about Romania’s girls because my girl will be jealous but I have to admit that it should begin by “Oh my God…” lol. Come to see yourself gentlemen !
People in Bucharest seems to not like very much their City, they use to say : “Bucharest is dirty, expensive, stressful…” All of theses things may be right but as a “Work Visitor” It was a real pleasure. During my first evening I met a french guy, Remi, who’s working in a booking call center here. Very nice guy who becomes a kind of travel guide… thanks Remi !! 🙂 He knows a mountain of things about Romania/n and Bucharest. I can’t find a better way to discover this town, I mean “Really thanks Remi !!!”
He introduced me to a friend of him, Lily who is a French teacher ! She really talks French fluently, with no accent.. really amazing… I met her with Remi at an Irish music’s pub. It was really a nice and fun night, Dancers were good and drinks too ! 🙂 Players/ Singers were Romanian geeks, just entering in a kind of Irishmania !
The best was when they danced all together ! 🙂 They made big noises with their shoes and you made big noises with you glass ! 🙂
There was this evening I just walked around the city, alone and of course I lost my way… After few hours I decided to make a break and I stopped to the first pub I found on my road. Fortunately it was one of the best hot wine bar in Bucharest ! 🙂 I told you… I were very lucky ! 🙂 After enjoying my hot drink I decided to find some help from people around this place then I met two nice students, Vlad and Bogdan ! After trying hard to explain how to go back to my hotel, they finally proposed to come with me. During the road we discussed together and I discovered that they are actors students !! They confessed to me that they’re just acting in some advertisements, and finally during our last met it seems they will play for a Romanian TV Show !! loool The TV Show seems to be famous in Romania, it titled a kind of “Love Brokers”… they told me it’s a bullshit tv show… :p but it’s ok it could be fun for them!
I definitely decided to come back for vacation in this country, to see Brasov (I missed the train at my week-end here… :p ), to see the Delta of Danube, to swim in the Black Sea so many things and placed to see… Anyway Vlad’s wife invited me for a week ! 🙂 I took it for words !
If you come around here you have to eat some local dishes and meals… Eat outside is cheap and it’s really good ! You may go to the student campus near from the river and eat some traditional meals, try their Enormous Pizza, and play pool with some friends 😉
Below are some shots I made during my trip:
