I’m back from vacation, so here is a photo similar to where I was. Mamaia Beach (Plaja Mamaia) is a resort town on the Black Sea coast. What’s really weird about it is…”Mamaia is 8 km (5 miles) in length and only 300 m (328 yards) in width, being a strip of land between the Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol.” (wikipedia)
An oft-photographed piece of Romania, it would seem, the Transfăgărăşan road (“over the Făgăraş Mountains”)
came into some fame in 2009 on Top Gear, the car-centric British tv show. (You can do a Google search to watch a video or clips of that episode.) Here’s another good photo of it.
90 km (60 mi) of twists and turns
climbs to 2,034 metres (6673 ft) altitude
average speed is around 40 km/h (25 mph)
cost: 6 million kilograms (13 million lbs) of dynamite and the lives of 40 soldiers due to construction accidents
According to the internet: “Transfagarasan road is (officially) open from July 1st to Nov 1st. It is closed during the night.”
Personally, I would feel safer in that cable car (telecabină). Plus, it looks like fun.
Pentru cei care folosesc Google Translate, când folosesc cuvântul "gritty" este mai mult similar cu "murdar" şi/sau "cu pietricele", şi nu înseamnă "curajos". În alte cuvinte, "gritty" înseamnă orice care nu este frumos.
