Bucharest, the capital of Romania, boasts an eclectic range of grand architecture, which, coupled with a sophisticated urban culture during the 1920s and 30s, earned the city the nickname "Little Paris."
From the beginning of WWII and the subsequent internal political upheavals up to the 1989 Revolution that ended a rogue regime little was spent on building maintenance, with the sad inevitable result that many buildings have felt the pain of neglect, run down or ramshackled.
As the economy generally improved over the past two decades, and as I've written here before, the city is getting a facelift. Many old mansions and buildings have been, or are in process of being, renovated.
The renovator, then, could be considered a modern day hero...
...especially when the job may require the additional skills of a rock climber! You'll have to enlarge this image to see this renovator hanging outside the last window on the right on the seventh floor.
And R is the letter at ABC Wednesday today.
