Flag of Romania  , Transylvania,
Monday, June 4, 2012

Today me and my new friend took a tour to an OK monastry and an awesome castle where dracula actually lived and impaled people. Our tour guide was talkative and a crazy driver and the roads were in horrible coniditon. We took his 33 year old Romanian car that was the third model ever built by this country. The driver had to keep speed in the turns and we would "tokoyo drift" every once in a while. He had to stop fairly often to put more oil in it. It reminded me of the Buick back home only it was a little more dependable.

The monestary was just OK but the castel ruins were amazing. We climbed 1,450 steps to reach the tops and the views were amazing. We met a bunch of middle school kids who were there on a history field trip. This 13 year old kid asked me, "Romainian girls are pretty, no?" I said sure. Their history is vampires, mine is the civil war. We also went to the Romainan "hoover dam" which was spectacular. We left the hostel at 10:30 AM and got back at 11:30 PM. I'm tired.

Hope everyone is well and I miss you guys.
