Brake at the river
The brake by the river

After Bacau, the road's serpentine was very exciting, but, unfortunately it goes through many villages so we couldn't ride in high speed, because the romanian peasants don't bind or watch over their animals. You could easily come across a sheep, a duck, a horse or a cow.

Suddenly we see a parking space by the side of a river. We stopped there to take some pictures and to have a cigarette. Next to us there was a man who was selling honey and wine, but we weren't interested in his products.

We noticed the cars passing us by and thought that we will have to outrun them again.

We left for Siret, the place where we will sleep tonight.

Siret

We arrived in Siret and were heading for the ucrainian custom house.
Wow: food!
It was a straight road so Marcos and I speed up to 200 kmph. We asked for accommodation at a Petrom gas station. They directed us back to Siret where we wandered off for some time before we got a place to sleep.

Some people told us of an inn where the rail station used to be and guided us there. It was expensive: 140 RON per suite and 90 RON / double room but very nice. This rail station was bought by an interior designer. He redecorated and turned it into an inn. We asked if they would make a discount or if they could let more than two persons sleep in a single room but they didn't want to hear it. All they offered us was a beer and a coffee per person. Imagine that one beer was not enough and bought more.

We got hungry but had nothing to eat, and there were no stores near by so Skywalker got on his bike and went to get some food.

Meanwhile Pacasac and Paula (Suzuki GS500E) arrived, they got here so late because he couldn't take the day off from his job and had to leave Brasov later.

The rooms were lovely and the suite was absolutely superb: it had a fireplace. Pacasac found a book called “The beer dictionary” and was very pleased. The whole place was neat but the staircase was very noisy and I was quite upset that we couldn't smoke inside. Instead, we stood outside and had another beer and a cigarette before Skywalker was back with the food: ham, salami, cheese and bread. We filled our stomachs and went back out to have some more beer.

The next morning we sprayed the chains on our bikes, put back on the luggage and left for the border; it was very close at a distance of about 2-3 km. We all filled our tanks at the Petrom gas station.

We crossed the Romanian part of the border quite easily; they checked our passports and the papers on the motorcycles and wished us a nice trip.
