Bits Of Background

I am getting some pretty large chunks of background done on the right side.  It seems to look a little less bare.

Just Starting The Third

I am now officially on the third corner.  Go me!

Breakfast At Creme De La Creme

Weekend breakfast at Creme de la Creme is an adventure when wasps attack and there are toddlers around.  It doesn't take away from the quality of the food, though!

Outside Peles

 Our last photos of Peles are of the grounds right outside the castle itself.  It's not that large an area, as Peles is in the town of Sinaia.  The area is very pretty, though.

Up On The Hilltop

All one color at the moment filling in the hill.

Home Theater Peles Style

Peles Castle has its own home theater.  It's a real theater with a backstage, a stage, an orchestra, and seating.  I guess this is just old style.

Filling In Boxes

I am filling in boxes on the top bar as I get a bit more done.

Bit Of Nails

I had plain metallic pink nails when I left the manicurist, so I added some glitter dots.  Andreas thought it looked really neat, so photos ensued.

Cow Fur Part Deux

Welp, I'm back to bordering now since I can't get any farther on anything else until my Neon Rays finally arrives.

Meat Wine Beef

This restaurant, Meat Wine Beef, has been open for about a year in the Riscani district of Chisinau.  We finally went early last month and had a very good meal. Any meal for Andreas that starts with compote is a good one.  He had the meat tray started and I had carpaccio.  I think Torro's is better, but this one was also very good.  It turns out that Meat Wine Beef is also the home of burger.md, a new delivery service in the city.  They deliver burgers - reasonably priced and reasonable tasting burgers.  Andreas decided to have one to try it out.  My main course was beef in a wine reduction, which was excellent.  Andreas enjoyed his burger enough that we went ahead and ordered from the website for lunch a couple of weeks later.

Overblown and Overlarge

 The whole palace is oversized.  It's huge and ostentatious and needing of a downsize.

Pizza In Birlad

On our way home from Brasov in July, we stopped in Birlad for pizza.  We were hungry and the Gradina de vara Paradis looked welcoming.  We went in after turning around and finding parking.  The place was cool and shady even outside on the terrace on a sunny hot day.  The service was very good and the pizza delicious and inexpensive.  Andreas had the one strewn with olives.  Mine was the one with mushrooms.  Neither of us could finish our pizzas, as they were big!  We also had some pickles, which were very good too.  We liked this place so much that when Andreas picked  friends up from Bucharest last month, he stopped here for dinner with them.

Turning The Page

I am finally turning the page to the next on this project!  It feels good to see progress on the chart.

Palatial Art And Storage

 My favorite of this set is the ceramic inlaid table.  I just can't imagine being burdened with all this - stuff.
