Transylvanian Archaeological Dig

Ok folks, I just did a dig in Transylvania. Our accommodations were tents, we were digging in a Dacian fort, there were Gypsies (who stole the camp's beer one day), roving sheep, bears, caves, suspicious villagers, and ancient ruins. Suffice to say I loved it. I am not paler, but I do have a craving for meat. At any rate, the awesomenessism of the place is best relayed through the wonders of photography:

The local village of Racos, omplete with haywagons!











Bran Castle!










Of course I went fishing!
