We're not sure where we are, but its Romania

A travel blog entry by ivanandvlad


... a full moon high in the midnight sky. It was a very scary walk home as we kept an eye out for Vampires and Werewolves. A quaint tradition here is that some houses have a stick out the front of the house with an upside-down pot on the end. This indicates that there is an eligible daughter available for marriage.
