Climbing the second tallest building in Romania isn’t a picnic, but it sure looks good once you get to the top. Viewing the barren wasteland that is Eastern Europe is especially invigorating from high altitudes, because you get a great view of all the irradiated rubble.
The land has a certain gray tinge to it that’s unique to Eastern Europe. It’s like they live in a giant desert made from shredded newspaper and dead communists, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the view. The concrete bunkers in the background give the place a certain je ne sais quoi. It makes me want to become a subsistence farmer and only eat beets for the rest of my life.
