Goodnight, Bucharest!

My last night here in Bucharest was delightful. Two Swiss Optarians (Tito & Loic) and I were given the grand tour of downtown by Mirela, the leader of Optaros Bucharest. I’ve posted the pictures from the end of the day at the office and our tour around town here.

I have to say that every meal we ate in Bucharest was delicious but the dinner we had at Burebista Bucuresti was outstanding. I had fried chicken legs on a bed of polenta with a big side of knock-you-on-your-ass garlic sauce. After dinner we tried palinca which is one of the “National Drinks of Romania”. It is essentially liquid fire with a hint of plum and a lip-numbing finish. I’m glad I tried it but next time I’ll stick with the Silva Dark.

It was great meeting and working with the Optaros team here in Bucharest. Working remotely is a natural part of everyday life for us at Optaros but these face-to-face meetings are the best way to build relationships. Thanks for everything, Optaros Bucharest, and I’ll see you soon.
