More About Romania

  • They smoke a lot! There is no ban on smoking in public places, and I am really  very okay with dealing with smoke… But I still had to exit a couple of restaurants because I couldn’t handle it (and couldn’t see anything through the haze either).
  • They seem rather surly and don’t smile without reason, but some of the friendliest people I’ve met are Romanians.
  • Indian passport holders BEWARE! If you have a Schengen visa, you are only allowed in the country for 5 days including the days you travel in and out, and you better have proof of exit on you. Or else you will have to go through a LOT of grief and humiliation.
  • Much as I loved Romania, my immigration experience there partly inspired this post about my nationality.
  • Currency- Romanian Lei
