While we were in Bran, two dogs followed us one evening. They befriended my daughter and tagged along as we walked back and forth looking for a cemetery to take my desired scary pictures.

They were friendly. Didn’t bark, didn’t bite.

Later, when we were in Otopeni, we found out that there were many stray dogs in Romania. And that there are thousands of dog attacks and dog bite incidents.

Our friendly receptionist at the hotel showed ugly scars on his arm. He was attacked by a group of aggressive stray dogs many years ago.
