Pasageri

Going to Delta is a pain in the ass. It's long, as it takes a day to get there. But, if you have a time, it can be a nice long trip from Bucharest through empty lands and the Danube. From what's called the gate town of the Delta, Tulcea, there is a ferry going to Sulina or other parts of Delta. Like I've written, Delta is like a bunch of islands. There is only a couple ferries a day (or once every other day depending on where you go), and if you miss it, you are stuck. Going to Sulina, the main town in the Delta, is relatively faster because they have "Rapid" ferries, which get you to the destination in one hour and half. But, it's twice more expensive than the regular one called Pasageri. It runs slow and, to Sulina, it takes about four hours and half. For many villagers, it's the only transportation to the outside of their villages. I took Pasageri on my way back and enjoy photographing them. It's slow, but pretty relaxing, and very photogenic. I regret that i didn't take this before.
