Wooohoo....this was amazing. The road went up to a height of about 6000 feet with bends and twists all the way. The views were spactacular and the trees were still in full autumn splendour. The photos show it all.

|We saw a lot of this. The locals having BBq's on open fires. It was only a couple of degreesa above freezing|
The winding road seemed to go on forever, at least the next hour. We then hit the motorway for the last 100 kms to Bucharest.
|And now Bucharest|
We have a good internet connection here so hopefully more pics tomorrow.
