Eating out - Hotel Restaurant "Casa cu tei", Craiova, Romania

The set menu had a soup, a main course and a dessert.

Only the soup was edible. The schnitzel was terrible and the dessert was a small packed sponge cake that one can buy from the supermarkets.

Eating out - Restaurant "Terasa Doamnei", Bucharest, Romania

Like many of the old restaurants in Bucharest, this one is not what it used to be anymore. Now it has become only a tourist trap with below average food and above average prices.

Meissen, porzellan-manufaktur, Germany - part 3

The last thing about the Meissen porcelain: the more kitschy - the more expensive they are.

It reminded us very much of the communist regime in Romania, where all the houses were full of kitsch porcelain (some examples here).
