Galati

I thought I'd post some pictures of our city...most are of pretty old buildings that are deserted. I also included a picture of our apartment building...tried to make it the last picture, but for some reason it came up in the middle...
Most of the city is like our apartment building...big rectangles, one after another, that were built during communism (I think). So, as you can imagine, I like looking at the old buildings...imagining what they must have been.















Here's a link to a website: "Houses that Weep". It shows more houses in Galati that are no longer what they once were (and thus the title of the blog, Houses that Weep. It's in Romanian, but the pictures are still great to look at. You'll also see on this blog a similar site for Bucarest.

They really are beautiful. Too bad they're empty. It makes you wonder if they'll deteriorate faster.
