Myths And The HUman Side Of It All

I've taken the time to reread Dracula and all those other wonderful myths that seem to come out of Transylvania.

I think the best thing one can say about myths is that there is always a human side to it.

Take for example our pop culture. Van Helsing being the most current example of putting two well known myths together. One thing which they forgot was that Transylvania was not all that cold and dark all the time.

Oh well, maybe I am one of the few who find humor in myths.

I suppose that going to see Transylvania and seeing the pictures of the green countryside would help many people.

Don't forget to go see Dracula's Castle, except that it was built in the last Century... for the tourist in all of us.
