Black Sea weekend

Some photos from the weekend trip to the Black Sea resort of Mamaia.

The road to Constanta

A Romanian village

Sunflowers, one of the two major agricultural products of the area (the other is corn)

The road to Mamaia. Hundreds of people stand along this road flashing car keys and I realized that they were all standing in front of cars of various ages and makes, trying to find buyers.

Street soccer

The "Welcome to Constanta" sign

If you swam in the black see and you got black, can we call you "Black Beauty" now.
One other thing, what you were doing awake at sunrise during vacations???

I was awake because some techno started blasting at 5:30am just below my hotel room window. I was on the 4th floor, but it was so loud I thought it was coming from the TV or the room next door. Turned out it was from that little hut in the pictures. They were all coming back from partying and opened the bar for "after hours" from 6 to 10am. After many complaints from people in the hotel, the "boom boom" music was lowered to a dull roar.
