Medias, Romania (21st of January 2006)

Saturday 21st of January 2006

Anyway, I got to Medias and was very cold and it was snowing. Very slippy and I only had an hour here before my connection to Sighisoara at 15.49. It was a small town and you can see the centre of town by spotting the main church spires.

You can check out the offical site and a picture site.

The historic centre is quite small but the old walls are still there and quite well perserved. It was snowing heavy now so I did not get alot of time here. My train (at 15.49) was due so I was back at the station at 15.20. I eas expecting a Personal Train but an IC train arrived ten minutes early at 15.39. Shit I nearly fell getting ont he train with the ice. If it wasnt for a guy behind me and a guy in front who draged me in, I would ahve faleen 3/4 feet from the steps of the train back down to the platform. Once I was on. I confirmed the destination with one of the passengers.
