Just not a morning person

never thought of myself as a morning person and anybody who knows me would be
very likely to agree on this point. There is no way I will get up in the
morning unless I really have to. But this morning I want to get up early to
catch a train to
take off and start to drive slowly. I sit down and try to relax for a while -
but then I look out the window. Why do I have the early morning sun to my left
when I am going north? It should be on my right in the east and not in the
west. I start to find a map and look at it to check if the railway is doing
some strange twist which would mean that I would be travelling south instead of
north - no it don't look like it. Then I start to wonder which track did I
actually arrive at yesterday - 1 or 2? Yep I went under the tracks yesterday -
so I had to be track number two and this morning I rush into the train on track
The train arrives and drives north - it is one of the unbelievable slow trains. Finally I get back to Sinaia train station - about 2-2½ after I got there in the first place - I would have been better of with a bit more sleep this morning I guess.

I get to
the first church in Prejmer and it looks pretty familiar - even though I never
have seen a fortified church before. It remain me of the fortified grannies in
northern Libya, where the Berbers hid there supplies in case of war - and the
design is almost the same - only the storage for the grains has been replaced
by tiny housing units instead.
After having seen the place from the inside it is time to have a quick look around at the outside and the small village square in front of the church. It is actually a really nice little spot and I am the only tourist anywhere in sight which just makes it all so much better for it.
I am off to
the next stop the another fortified church closer to
The church is nice, but not nearly as attractive as the first church in Prejmer. It is build in more or less the some shape though with a round wall protecting against enemies but there is not nearly as many housing units and the whole church is a lot worse maintained than the other one. Ah well I am here and there is no reason not to wander around the place when I am and look a bit closer at it - it is not like I am disturbing the other tourist in Romania.
And then it
is finally time to head back to
