As the crow flies

Sighişoara is actually the birthplace of Vlad Ţepeş, so of course there’s a Dracula restaurant at the site of his old home.

OK, I'm going to give the translation a try, with no guarantees that this is actually correct: "In this house from the years 1431 - 1435 lived ruler of Romania Vlad Dracul, eldest of Micrea the Eldest." Or something.  So I guess this is referring to his father.

What was more creepy in Sighişoara, however, was the sight of huge flocks of crows swarming around the church by the river. You could hear them screeching a hundred meters away. Looking up, they were everywhere.

Caw!

When I walked back later in the evening, an old woman was standing in the middle of a large patch of grass, banging on a pot with a wooden spoon. The crows overhead screamed back at her. I have no explanation.
