There have been a lot of visitors to this blog from Romania in the last week. So here are some pictures taken on a brief visit in September 1993. We flew on a Tarom charter flight from Manchester to Constanta and hired a Dacia car to drive to Iasi. However the car was in a terrible condition and didn't feel safe at speeds above 50 kph so we only went as far as Galati. These pictures were taken in Braila and Galati.
In 1993 many of the trams were in very poor state. Deliveries of new trams had ceased and the second hand German trams were only just beginning to arrive and we didn't see any. The trams pictured are Tatras or Romanian built Timis cars,
