Day 41, BUS 1: Rest day in Constanta

7 June 2018

Sunday was a rest day and the EMIN crew on BUS 1 used it to rest, catch up with some work and prepare for the next days. We also used the time to update the blog and write about the events organized in Sofia and Pleven, Bulagaria and in Giurgiu, Romania. In the afternoon, our Romanian hosts organized for us a guided tour of the old city centre. The tour made us travel back in time as far as 8 CE, when the Roman poet Ovid or Publius Ovidius Naso by its full name was exiled to Constanta, known at that time as Tomis. Unlike Ovid, we enjoyed our stay in Constanta.
