Never really thought about this before, but it took Jonathan two days to screw up his courage to go back to that room. That kinda ups the creepy.

Good point. Reading this way, through the blog's chronology, really opens up the timeline!

I was IN that room just 2 days ago!!!

Greetings from Transylvania. Eventually my friend Jason and I will put lots of stuff on a web page.

Greetings, Elizabeth! Our envy - er, best wishes go with you.

Sorry for the double posting last time - it's those Transylvanian computers! :)

I must clarify what I meant by saying I was in that room. High up in the Borgo Pass there's a Castle Dracula Hotel - built in 1983 for the tourist trade. We stayed there overnight on our journey from Transylvania east into Bucovina. In the cellar of the hotel is a room with a coffin and paintings of vampires. Sort of tacky, but hey - it's in a "castle" in the Borgo Pass and it's all fiction.

What I found REALLY tacky is the presence of Vlad-as-vampire souvenirs in the stalls around various historical sites.

We will be putting together a photo gallery (of hundreds of pictures). When it's ready, I'll send along the URL.
