Let's Hope the Mayor Isn't Hiding Up There
Eastern Europe's getting popular for medical travel: a nose job, new teeth, or even a tonsillectomy, if that's your idea of a good time. Now, Romania's trying to corner the fertility travel market. There's no first-class IVF clinic or fancy new technology involved: it's as simple as what the locals like to call the "Humping Hill".
In Horea, a small town on the north-western border of Romania, even the local mayor claims that gettin' busy atop this hill is responsible for most of the births in the region. For more than three hundred years, childless couples from near and far have miraculously been able to conceive amongst the bushes above Horea. The friendly mayor has even arranged for extra shrubs and trees to be planted to provide more privacy.
So hurry to Horea: it's just a matter of time before more capitalistic tourism practices kick in and they start charging per thrust.
