Last week we went to the A. I. Cuza park in Bucharest to see the major changes that happened there: complete replacement of the alleys, various monumental features and … peacocks! Both white and normal. I assume it’s supposed to be impressive but I found it very sad as there are about 12 peacocks in a quite small fenced space covered with a mesh and guarded by a security guy. And to add to the grandeur of the whole thing they also brought some white and black swans that are kept in a relatively small patch of water. I wonder where all the money came from and why they could not be used to repair the ugly apartment buildings around instead of creating this crazy park!
