First stop – Bucharest

Bucharest quick stop – English version scroll down below pictures

Am reusit in sfarsit sa ajung si eu acasa , terminat cel mai greu voiaj de pana acum , un voiaj marcat de scandaluri , marlanii  , multe inspectii si audituri , incendiu , negri clandestini , unde s-a lucrat intr-o atmosfera constant tensionata in care superiorii au abuzat de puterea si de rangul lor pentru a-si acoperi propiul spate si interes , deseori costul fiind platit de restul echipajului , iar munca grea evaluata de superiori conform criteriilor personale la sfarsitul voiajului.  Nici cu plimbatul prin locuri exotice numai pot sa ma laud  voiajul asta , am nimerit o ruta in care ne-am imvartit numai prin Golful Guinei (Nigeria , Benin , Coasta de Fildes , Togo) , cu un singur port la civilizatie in Spania , unde era cap de linie si era imposibil de iesit la oras din cauza inspectiilor , schimburi de echipaj , provizii si spare parts. Sper din tot sufletul sa numai prind asa ceva , m-am intors slab (undeva la 67 de kg) , cu fire albe in cap ,  si parca  as sta numai in pat cateva zile , si se pare ca si acasa am pierdut destule  pe plan personal ….

Dar macar s-a terminat pentru acum , am avut totusi placerea de a petrece la sosire 2 zile in Bucuresti alaturi de rude , fosti colegi si prieteni vechi care m-au sprijinit ( la propiu uneori 🙂 ) si mai m-au  facut sa uit de belelele recente. Am vazut cafeneua Plot Shop unde isi face veacu sormea cu al ei tovaras de treaba  , am prins si Noaptea Muzeelor deschise la Bucuresti , am vizitat Antippa , unde din fericire nu a trebuit sa stam la coada de 2 kilometri care se intindea dupa 2 colturi 🙂 , iar tot orasul eram plin ochi , de lume si turisti care se plimbau pe strazi intre muzee creand o atmosfera frumoasa rau.  Ziua prin Bucuresti am experimentat si un tur interesant cu autobuzul supraetajat de la City tour si norocul a facut sa ma intorc la Constanta tot cu prieteni vechi care tocmai se intorceau din concediu.

La Constanta nu s-a schimbat mare lucru , vad ca mallul Corall de vizavi progreseaza frumos iar intersectia a fost transformata intr-un sens giratoriu marisor. Acum ca vine si vara sper sa se schimbe si atmosfera de oras trist tipica extrasezonului din oras , si abia astept sa vad Vama Veche , sa ma urc in masina si sa numai ma opresc decat dupa 500 de km cand vad muntele, sa regust shaorma adevarata , sa beau o bere la barul preferat din cartier si multe multe altele. Dar e timp destul de acum. O sa postez in curand si putinele poze facute prin Africa.

Inside Antippa Museum


Intrarea la Antippa


Constanta se schimba incet

P1030577 [800x600]

I finally managed to get home, finished the hardest trip so far, a journey marked by scandals, marlins, many inspections and audits, fire, clandestine blacks, where we worked in a constantly tense atmosphere in which superiors have abused by their power and rank to cover their own back and interest, often the cost being paid by the rest of the crew, and the hard work assessed by superiors according to personal criteria at the end of the voyage. Even with walking through exotic places I can only boast of this journey, I found a route in which we traveled only through the Gulf of Guinea (Nigeria, Benin, Ivory Coast, Togo), with only one port to civilization in Spain, where he was the head of the line and was unable to go out because of inspections, crew exchanges, supplies and spare parts. I hope with all my heart to only catch something like that, I came back weak (somewhere at 67 kg), with white hairs on my head, and it’s as if I only stayed in bed for a few days, staff ….

But at least it’s over for now, I still had the pleasure of spending 2 days on arrival in Bucharest with relatives, former colleagues and old friends who supported me (sometimes :)) and made me forget about recent troubles. I saw the Plot Shop cafe where she spent the night with her good friend, I also caught the Night of Open Museums in Bucharest, I visited Antippa, where fortunately we did not have to stand in line for 2 kilometers that stretched after 2 corners: ), and the whole city was full of people and tourists walking the streets between museums creating a beautiful bad atmosphere. During the day in Bucharest I also experienced an interesting tour with the double decker bus from the City tour and luck made me return to Constanta also with old friends who were just returning from vacation.

In Constanta, not much has changed, I see that the Cora mall opposite is progressing nicely and the intersection has been transformed into a large roundabout. Now that summer is coming, I hope that the sad city atmosphere typical of the off-season in the city will change, and I can’t wait to see Vama Veche, to get in the car and only stop after 500 km when I see the mountain, to taste real shaorma , to drink a beer at my favorite bar in the neighborhood and much more. But it’s enough time now. I will soon post the few pictures taken in Africa.
