I can't believe that I've been here 10 days. I feels like I've been here for months... Then again time does seem to fly by when you're in good company. I haven't written in so long I am starting to feel scattered brain.
The past week has been kind of surreal. I am staying at a hostel about 3km away from the city center and I still haven't been to the city center (with the exception of 1 day for moving stuff), so basically my thought process is to explore this area before moving into the hostel in old town, which I will have plenty of time to explore and get to know the older city.
So far, my main highlights here in Bucharest has been, sightseeing wise, hanging out at the park with a beer, running around the park (no beer), checking out the Mega Mall, and hanging out with some awesome people I met here at the hostel, mainly the other volunteers. My main accomplishment so far has been developing a British accent, since two of them are Bree-tish, and the other guy is from Brazil.
Budget wise, so far so good. Including a night of completely getting plastered and grocery shopping and drinking beers (nightly), I have spent less than 2 night (maybe even 1) in London.
I did go to a gay bar with some cool shows! (ask me for more details).
Oh yeah - guess what? I'll be working for the same company I left 5 years ago. It's time to go back (after this awesome summer trip - of course).
Well, off to bed. I should write something else, but next time.
Mahalo for reading.
Until next time.
