The moon was full, lighting the way for my late night visit to Dracula’s Palace. I was accompanied by a handsome Romanian college student, whom I had met on the train from Bucuresti to Tirgoviste. He didn’t quite understand my interest in this “historical site” where Vlad Tepes had lived, and so, I climbed over the wall alone.

I had only been walking around for a few minutes, when out of the lower courtyard it flew towards me, narrowly missing entanglement in my hair. I knew that birds did not fly at night. This had been a bat !!

Well, I did survive.  The Romanian guy then took me Tango dancing.  We both used our high school French to communicate.


About Łowiczanka

I'm a former dancer who loves all things Polish, especially the music... whether it be folk songs and dances from Poland, or polka music from Chicago. Oh, yes, and I love pierogi !
