Someone has taught me how to do pictures here, so I thought you might like a look at Transylvania.
The picture above is of a typical Saxon town, called Cloasterf. The Church/Citadel is the defining part of these villages, all of which are between 5 and 8 km apart. Their primary use was defensive against invading Turks and Ottomans.
This is is a typical area - note the farm track and hay ricks. Also the lack of trees.
