we're in Timisoara

We made it here Sunday night. Timisoara! We traveled by train from Bucharest for nine hours and arrived at about 7:30 in the evening. The best part of the trip was getting close to the Danube. At times the train was riding right along side the water. We were losing the light, but this made the whole scene even more intense. I was supposed to get some work done, but spent the whole time with my eyes on the landscape. I had forgotten the pleasure of riding on a train through the country. Speaking of trains, ours was very good. Gone are the old cars, we rode in a nice new car with very comfortable seats that reclined. We also had electrical power.

Timisoara is quite lovely and the square we are on, Piata Victoriei (Victory Plaza), is really large and, in my opinion, the most beautiful of the public squares here.

We spent all day Monday preparing the inflatable for its presentation Tuesday. This meant unpacking the crate, setting up all of the electricity, and adding our new and improved anchors. This took about four hours but all went well. After a bite we returned and inflated on the square for the first time. The winds were a bit higher than we liked but we managed to secure all of the anchors in place. The head looked great even with the protective fencing around it.
