Bucharest Photo Gallery

I was born in Bucharest, but I've been living around Chicago for about 15 years.Here are couple of photos of my hometown.Most of the people who come to Romania are extremely surprised, since the media is trying to show only bad things about it just so they can make a buck.Guess what there are way more homeless people in New York alone than in the entire Romania wich is a country of 23 milion.Whatever, I don't have to tell you what's going on.They will try to put you down but the secret is to keep going and quietly get rich lol.

It looks very elegant
To me it looks like it has a 'shy personality' but just waiting for the right moment to come out
