A hell lot has changed since then – part II

– So, how much is the rent in such an apartment with two rooms ?


– Well, now, about 300 Euro. But it was higher last year, when prices were at peak.

– Man, this is so crazy. This block of flats is so ugly !

– Yes, most of them are like this. And to buy one it’s about 60000 E, or even more. Now. Last year, 100000 E.

– To live with the gypsies as neighbours. What is the inflation rate here in Romania, just as a personal curiosity ?

– Well, last year about 7%. A hell lot !

– No, I’ve been here 20 years ago, when I was a teenager, and a hell lot has changed since then… for example a flat is 370 Euros per month
