Leaving Romania

We're in a little town called Rudaiti in the north of Romania near the Ukraine border staying with a friend, Kif. He was kind enough to put us up for tonight and today took us for a ride in the countryside. Have some wonderful photos but will have to wait to upload them.
Heading into the Ukraine tomorrow morning. We're told it should be an easy crossing; maybe and hour at the most with the paperwork; then on to Kiev. Should take us 2 days to reach Kiev and we might splurge on a decent hotel to do some washing and have a soft bed (Michael's arse is getting flat and sore!)
We're sorry to be leaving Romania. It has been one of the most wonderful countries we have ever travelled through; and met the most friendly and welcoming people.
Much thanks to Kif and Mihai and Andrei for making our stay most enjoyable.
If you've never been to Romania; think about it - you don't know what you're missing!
