You've never heard of this eclipse because in general in America you never hear about what's happenning in the rest of the world

Nah, it's not that we don't hear of, say, riots in London or suburban Paris; it's that we just don't care. :-P
(But seriously, it does appear from that map as if the nearest the eclipse got to me would have been well up into northern Quebec, in the middle of the night.)

I am now in Oberwald. Today we drove thru Passo gavia, splunga and novena. Plus a change of car in the chaotic bergamo airport

Here, are pictures from sections A-C of the map

Some pictures are not that great, we had the sun in our eyes, and some crazy reflections occurred .















































Then we stopped at Sarmizegetusa, an ancient Roman site, you can find pictures from the site in this thread

Here, are pictures from sections D-E, the Transfagarasan road of the map - it's not the entire part, because it got dark, but the most essential one

PART 4

On the other side, the weather is sunny

























The Vidraru Dam



Road continues down the dam that way


After this it became darker, and because the road was through woods, I couldn't take decent photos anymore.
To be continued with Transalpina road and road back to Timisoara.

The asphalt is really OK, no complains there. Only some km after I stopped taking pictures, there was a section through the woods, that was terrible, I mean big potholes.

g.spinoza, thanks, and yes, the landscapes are really beautiful.

I'm not sure if it's officially a camping place, but I guess people are camping how they can. Don't think there are toilets and showers. There are some pensions/motels where you can stay also. Maybe other users know better.

Here, are pictures from sections I-J of the map, Transalpina road

As you will se the road is still under construction, most of it is in good and very shape, only markings missing.
