When travelling from Hungary I was thrown off the train 10 miles before Oradea at the border.
Apparantly because my passport was a fake! I had to wait for 2 hours in a freezing cold office on the border before the police decided to let me go, I think they were more interested in the football on tv.
On the way out again, my case was searched by a different guy and they give you a lot of hassle.

We met Carla (Carla25) here at the Lotus shopping mall where she usually shoots some pool with friends. But i was quickly told of by two big security men that photographing wasn't allowed. I tried of course to argue with them. After all, it is just a shopping mall.. But NO stayed the answer.
So when i was back there i took the picture from next to the car...
This building that was built in 1890 is now an health maintenance organization... but take a look in it... its about to collapse...
Not like other buildings in the old town this is in a very bad condition and needs a complete renovation until it gets to western standards... so watch out if you go near it that no stone will fall on your head...
