THINGS YOU CAN'T DO IN THE "H.P."
You can't ...buy fantastic pastries and breads from street vendors ....Mikie is already looking forward to "pastries with telemea" (a sharp, feta-like Romanian cheese), I like those and "branza dulce" (a sweet cheese) and Emma loves "ciuperci" (mushrooms). BTW, those babies in the top, left rack are called "melc" (Romanian for snail) and they are "almost" like cinnamon buns without the cinnamon and not so sweet ....but oh-so-good!
You can't ...zip under the city in the subway like we do "back home."
You can't ...shop at this cool grocery store (Mega Image ....there seems to be one on every street corner) that is a few bus stops from our apartment.... we like it b/c it is small, trendy and has very good, inexpensive "store brand" items (BTW, in the "it's a small world department," this chain is owned by Food Lion, which has stores right in our hometown in South Carolina).
