Where in the World? Cismigiu

Quiz time people. Where do you think these photos were taken?

Clue: it’s a children’s playground. It’s covered in litter, complete with benches so smothered in pigeon crap you can’t sit on them. It also has slides which end in a steep bumb that goes straight into concrete slabs.

So, where is this wonderful place? In one of Bucharest’s ghettos? Berceni? Rahova? Colentina?

No. This is Cismigiu, people. Celebrated Cismigiu, the city’s showpiece park, where brides come to be photographed by the flower beds every summer weekend.

God help us.
