Bucharest and Back

I just spent three days in Bucharest at Fulbright meetings. Sujata and the kids stayed in Timisoara. Here’s a brief photo essay:

Statue of King Carol I across the street from the National Museum of Art, Romania. The collection is mostly made up of Carol’s collection of medieval German and Italian art

Peles Castle, Sinaia. The Fulbright Commision took all the 2016 Fuilbright Scholars here for the day. Peles was Carol I’s retreat from Bucharest.

The Communiists left Peles mostly undamaged. Carol remains on guard.

Marie’s “Gold Room.” Hers was a mind on fire and this room nicely represents that.
