This imposing man is guarding a…fast-food restaurant.  In the event that things get out of hand when ordering a sandwich at the Gara de Nord Springtime, he can step in and diffuse the situation.  This kind of presence is quite indicative of Bucharest (and indeed the region as a whole).  An even more threatening figure was observed in the Unirii Mall patrolling the aisles of Leonardo (a discount shoe store): he brandished enough mace to quell a small riot.  I asked if he expected trouble…he sniffed and continued his rounds.
