Dragonul Rosu is Bucharest’s #1 source for things Made in China.  It’s labyrinthian warehouses are chock full of items that most likely do not comply with international manufacturing regulations or adhere to production standards and practices (i.e., the child’s toy you bought will probably break five minutes after the kid gets lead poisoning).  During a recent visit, The Bugler discovered a knock-off of a popular side-scrolling game called “Super Mary” (an homage to — or intellectual property ripoff of — everyone’s favorite mushroom gobbling plumber).  According to a local rumor this bazaar-like place has such peculiar operating hours (6 AM to 2 PM) to avoid the taxman!
