Friday 7.6.1985

The goal of my trip was Constanta, on the coast of the Black Sea in Roumania.
Unfortunately the frontier is closed since 2 days for politicaly reasons.
No opening of the frontier will be done in the next days, so i decide to go back to Switzerland.

I will stay one more day in Ungary and visitng the Balaton Lake.
I'm driving with a Swiss Subaru 4x4. The people see me from far away.
Everywhere when i stop, the people want to know where i come from, what is it for a car, and so on...

Saturday 8.6.1985

The frontier is always closed.
I drive back to Switzerland without a stop.
I'm at home sunday at about 3 o'clock in the morning.
