This month's Virtual Paint Out visited Romania.  This is a country with an amazing history of being conquered, reconquered and divided and redivided.  Especially amazing when you wander the roads today.  What exactly were these folks conquering? It looks like there is nothing there accept a few humble one and a half story abodes and a lot of very treacherous looking mountains, where even Google maps refuse to go.  Tried finding Dracula's relatives in Transylvania but alas there were none in sight.  Couldn't even find a wandering gypsy.  These houses with their aging patina were the most exciting things I could find.  I added the grey skies as I felt if I lived in Romania I would always feel a little grey.
