I don’t know what it is about Monday’s lately, but the last several weeks I’ve found myself unable to post anything on Monday’s. I’m like a traveling, blogging version of Garfield.
Yesterday I was on an 11 train ride from Budapest, Hungary to Sighisoara, Romania. Needless to say, the Romanian trains do not have wifi.
Sighisoara is a very picturesque town and is also famous for being the birthplace of one Vlad Dracul, aka Vlad the Impaler, aka Dracuala.
Technically, it is still Friday on the west coast of the US when I’m posting this, so I can feel a bit OK about myself. Anyway, here are some things to read from around the internet that those of you curious about the world might be interested in:
