Our first visit is to the National Museum in Bucharest, which holds treasures from all over Romania. Before lunch, we tour the old town, then continue to the Philharmonia Academy followed by a look at the ‘Pharaonic House of the People’ - Romania’s Parliament. We end the day at the Village Museum. [Communication didn’t seem to be the strong suit on this trip.  In late afternoon some people began hearing about an unannounced lecture.  Dinner was originally scheduled for 19:00, then departure was changed to 18:45.]
