Vlad the Impaler or Dracula?

A travel blog entry by liliflynn


... the "commission flat" side of town, with our apartment located on the top floor (with no lift) of a communist era concrete tower. However, once inside, the apartment was a delight. Making our way to Brasov Town Square, Rose and I joined a walking tour of the town, led by Carmen. The main highlights included a tour around the gothic Black Church and citadel area, finishing with a climb to an old watchtower for a fantastic view of the ...

I had the top bunk. The top bunk had maybe 18" of clearance between me and the ceiling. I could literally reach up and palm the ceiling.
