We stayed in Tulcea this past spring, at a nice little place called Hotel Select, which happened to have a great view of the city. I set aside the travel fatigue, stayed up late and then woke up early to take photos. Here’s a selection for you.
The Algonquin will soon host its 90th anniversary of the Algonquin Round Table, and they’re holding a Commemorative Symposium of Wit and Wisdom on November 17th, from 7-9 pm. Tickets cost $100 each. Should be a lot of fun.
We stayed at the Algonquin Hotel in 2007, during our weekend trip to Manhattan, and we highly recommend it. The location is wonderful, very near to Times Square, yet on a relatively quiet side street without many street lights, which means you can get a good night’s rest. The beds are comfy, and the decor is tasteful. The setting is, of course, historic, and that’s worth quite a bit in our book.
The arch is a common architectural element at Histria. They seemed to love using bricks in conjunction with field stone, layering them on top of each other in interesting ways. Photo taken among the ruins of Histria, the oldest documented city on Romanian territory. Histria is located on the shore of Lake Sinoe, a salt-water lake with a direct link to the Black Sea, near Constanta, in the region of Dobrogea.
