... Heavens Door? - Not quite. Very brief post about my latest 'Romanian Experience'.
Another place to visit if you are or come to Brasov is 'Festival 39' directly on Republicii.
I promised some recommendations for places to go in Brasov. So here is the first one: Club Arta. The cinema of old times has been a billiard club before. Less than a year ago it got a new owner and received a total overhaul. The result is a comfortable place to go for playing Pool, Snooker, Darts and Table Tennis.
Prices are decent, quality is very good and I have not met a single person there, who was anything less than friendly. Find more details below.
Here is the promised update. If you don't know the beginning of this story, I strongly recommend reading it now.
Contrary - but not entirely unexpected - to RDS's promise to send the team (woudl be the third one) with the decoder on the day after the cabling was done, nobody showed up and nobody called. They called today.
This morning RDS called (Romanian provider for Internet access). In and of itself this is no special feat. In fact we had been waiting for this call for more than 3 (in words: three) months.

Not being a very large city, Brasov offers an amazing variety of entertainment facilities. Not only, but especially in the city center one can find a multitude of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops. A bit outside the center one can do all kinds of more or less physical activities. This is the announcement for several posts, describing some of my favorite locations. Of course you are more than welcome to post your comments and own preferred locations.
Several native Romanians assured me, that renting an apartment is a piece of cake. Basically you visit some, decide for one and on the same or latest next day sign the papers, get the keys and you move in. Yeah, right ...
