The Palace of Parliament, second in size only to the Pentagon, was our destination today. Begun in 1984 at a cost of 3.3 BILLION Euros Nicolae Ceauśeau had vast areas of invaluable architectural treasures razed to make for this grandiose pretentious madness of a monument to himself. The 330,000 square meters remains unfinished but is in part occupied the two Houses of Parliament and their supporting bureaucracies.

A Committee of Sixty Seats

One of Many Enormous Reception Spaces

Following our 3 hour tour of the Palace we had a 3 hour dinner that was without question the most amazing “molecular” food experience of my life.

  1. What did you eat? Did it steam and gurgle, freeze and smoke?
