Bucharest Romania

I posted on Lonely Planets travel companions forum, looking for someone to travel down Central America. And I had a reply from Vera, who is from Romania and we got chatting on Skype and I decided to meet Vera in her home town of Bucharest. Vera owns her own hostel, check it out if you ever visit Bucharest.
