Bran, 2 September

Since Castle Bran has been branded (pun not intended) as Dracula's Castle, along with all the vampire and Vlad kitsch at the kiosks there's a spook house. Last year at Halloween-time I visited the show put on at Universal Studios in Hollywood so this seemed quite quaint in comparison, although the shrieks of pain and agony coming out were very effective. The clerk started to look like he was thirsty for blood. I dared not enter alone and there was no way that I could induce A. to go in with me.
