hello from eastern europe,
i am currently in romania staying with theo stelio and thea pam, and things have turned into samos again.
theo stavro, thea marianthi, christo and yiayia also joined mother and i here so it is pretty hectic.
it is v.v hot outside, too hot for me to be outside.
so since last time, i had my last few days in greece with emalia and amy.
i took them to kokkari, we went out and drunk from fishbowls.
and then we left eachother, and i left greece after 2 months.
which was weird, being there for so long.
then i flew to romania.thank you communism.
so i didnt go to brasov because i was sick and fell asleep half an hour before they left for the 3 hour drive, but mum took photos for me.
i wish i went, it is a beautiful, typical eastern european mountain town.view from the top, bucharest.this is the peoples palace, second biggest political building after the pentagon, built in 1984 by the communist leader, but never fully completed after the revolution, they are still finishing it now.
a pretty little monastery, 235 years old.
streets of bucharest.
this is the village museum, a cute little town made up of traditional homes they transported into a big park.the church, those triangle things are for the animals.
people still use those here.
the rest of the house is underground.
v. old carousel.the next day we drove for 3 hours to bran, where bran castle aka 'draculas castle' is situated.
it is in transylvania.
oh, and the mat still had claws.
me + mum + yiayia.
draculas bed, thats where all the bella and edward type magic happens.
my future wedding dress.thea pam + yiayia.
wishing well.
i had to do it, im sorry.
people drive horse and carts on the road, the carts are fitted with car tyres.
the mountains are so so pretty, the traffic is insane, and the streets are lined with prostitutes who wear nothing but underwear.
there is also a plague of stray dogs that look like wolves and hang in packs, this is because when communism began people had to leave their animals when they left their homes and so they all ran into the forrest and made babies.
i also saw harry potter while i was here, and had chai and mcdonalds for the first time in 2 months.
i leave tomorrow for athens, and then i am off to scotland.
until then, adios amigos!
(i come home next month, so not looking forward to that)
