Day 9- The Bucharest Hilton had the most amazing breakfast spread I have ever seen. I ate entirely way too much because one of the things they had out was jars of Nutella. And I obviously can’t control myself around Nutella. After the most amazing breakfast of my life, we set off for our first tour with the rest of the people going on the Viking cruise with us. We stopped at the ethnographic museum, where I spent a good portion of the tour playing with the feral kittens that were running around, and got to see how many of the people used to live in the late 19th/early 20th century. Then we went to the parliament building which was the most boring tour of my life, I couldn’t even focus on anything the woman was saying because it was 8000 degrees inside. We went for a traditional Romanian meal and had a folk dancing performance, and then visited yet another historic church. On the hour trek from the church to the boat, the air conditioning line in the bus snapped which caused the starter coil to snap and we were stranded on the side of the road in 100000 degree heat. I honestly thought I was going to have a heat stroke and die. We sat there for a good half an hour before they finally managed to fix the bus and got us to the boat! My Grammy and I checked into the smallest room I’ve ever seen in my life, but eventually managed to make it work. We had our daily briefing and then first night’s dinner where we got to chat with some wonderful British ladies with the best accents. After dinner I made my way up to the bar and sat down with a glass of wine and my book and ended up meeting the only other 4 people on the ship that were my age!
