Yesterday after going out til 5 am the night before, my friend wakes me up at 10 am and says lets go. Im like SHIT I didnt even feel like I closed my eyes for 5 minutes before he wakes me .
Im lucky just to have put my shoes on because we always are in a rush to do something ...... What?........ I never seem to know. I didnt even have time to brush my teeth.... Nasty... I know.
So his friend picks us up and we start driving and the whole time I think we are heading to a Folkloric dance but that wasnt the case. We pick up two more people and have a full boat. Picture this........ the country side with lush green rolling hills Listening to Romanian music, Gypsies music (there are a lot them in this country), pop music, trying to understand the conversations in Romanian, sunny day, windows down, the open road, not having a clue where you are going but I didnt care . To me I dont know if it gets any better than that.
Im going to take a guess and say that Im going to lose 4 pounds for me which is a lot. We never seem to have time to eat. Thats what I love to do and Im being deprived of it.
We finally reach our destination (3 -4 hours) and it was Dracula's Castle, where I paid to do a haunted house. Why do people like to be scared? IM glad I used the bathroom before I entered.
Checked out another castle but this time we were drinking in the car (legal) and then checked out Brasov, a city rich in history and the outdoor cafes that lined the streets with the snow capped mountains in the background...... priceless.... plus the wine was really cheap. \
When I thougt we were finally going home at 9 or 10 pm we head to the lookout point of the city. F#$% they just keep outdoing themselves. Drove 3 to 4 hours back home and I slept the majority of it. When I woke up I apparently had felt comfortable enough to lay down in the back seat while there still were people. Try to picture that one .
I cant express what Im really feeling.
Fidias has been more than a good host he has made this trip for me hands down.
Im about to talk a well deserved shower and then guess what. WE are taking a train to the west part of the country.... Timisoara and then Im off to Croatia. I think......
