i’ve been living in this area for about 5 years and last week i came across a deserted park right across my building… the entrance is a flight of corroded stone stairs that take you down to what used to be a medium-sized park with a ring lake. the alleys are invaded by plants, the movable parts of the bridge have long been stolen and the lake looks partially like a mire, covered by reeds.
the birds were flying away from my path, half scared half wtf?. i saw a mole hole and ducks on the water. first, i wondered why isn’t this place fixed up and used by people? it’s not like bucharest has too many green areas…and then i realized that this is so much better: wilderness in the middle (well…) of the city!
