also when leaving bucarest, the weather stayed as it was before: wet and rainy. therefore i spent the first night after leaving bucarest in a bed - protected from rain. the lady, who finally gave me the small room about 95 km east of romanias capital, she did not stop talking and talking in romanian language to me. of course i did not catch one single word. during the whole night then i kept awake because of many mice inside the house. i crossed the border to bulgaria at Silistra. before, i crossed the 1 km wide danube with a ferry boat. also in bulgaria the weather was very bad. therefore i was happy that during shopping nice people invited me to stay overnight. bulgarian people are smoking very much. the inviting parents, who have a 3 years ol daughter, smoke 25 cigarattes daily. each!
on the 1.5. the sun was shining! for this reason i was always able to camp during the night. but nevertheless i had to struggle: just yesterday i was repairing punctures for 4 hours in total! it is really awful i can tell you! the tubes are leaving air exactly on the same place. i fear that the tubes do not fit to the 2,25 thick marathon XR, because this problem i have just with the thick tyre. yesterday it was the most beautiful one of the whole tour yet. i cycled in green landscape along the luda kamcija river. now i am in AJITOS. during the next three days i am planning to enter turkey at either MALKO, TARNOVO or KIRKLARELI.
