An entry by Ben in Romania - August 9th
Another entry from our beloved Hajji Diary (see post The Hajji Diary below to learn about this gem!)
˝A Carpathian Carpus once said to me ˝A man with no seed with never bear fruit˝, I now know this to be false, no watermelon has ever known wisdom.
The sounds of ˝How Bizarre˝ gently wafts through our cattle-feed campground surrounded by cattle-grade corn, another day spent as close to the Fagaras mountains as we may ever be. Yesterday we awoke early in a Carrefore megamall, participated in the biennial Brasov town traffic parade, saw a town enslaved by the touristic spurn of a fictional vampire, Foget entrapped in the grips of super dolce wine, ate at a Sighisoaric piyyaria which had no pizza oven and were eventually sent to bed by a fickle wax candle.
The Euchre score was Ben-Lauren 7 to Neala-Cousy 5, a 2 point lead that late in the game indicated the end was very near. The peace and comfort of wilderness camping will soon be foreign to us...tomorrow we leave Romanistein, a land with a rich history of horse-drawn locamotion, vampires, jew-forsaking, and gypsies. Our next destination is Sziget for over a week of self indulgent hedonism, getting crazy and revelling in pro-selfism. We need to stock up on cheap swill. A couple of quotes of blog worthy wisdom from yesterday...
˝A bad day in the Hajji is better than a good day of work˝
˝The Hajji only drinks the cheapest swill.....kinda like us˝ (talking about diesel...always the cheapest)
Time to settle the scores of last nights card game which was postponed due to luminary difficulties....
Ben the Impaylor˝
