"I could not believe Romania has such fine castles! From all the castles I have seen, Bran is the closest to my heart! Peles was also a major surprise but maybe too royal for my taste. Also, many thanks for the medieval breath of air – Sighisoara. I didn’t know such places still exist. Please send my best to Mr. Muresan, his web spider painting looks beautifully in my living, he truly is a unique artist!"
