... Hosteleigenen "Aussenbar" und lernen zudem noch einen supernetten Ami, Casey, kennen und eine Niederlaenderin, Tessa. Wir verbringen den Abend Floecc trinkend, quasi Weinschorle auf Ungarisch mit eigenem ungarischen Weisswein und erkunden das Oertchen dann noch ein wenig. Ausserdem gibt es im Hostel ein Gulash nach muttis REzept, in einem riesigen KEssel ueber offenem Feuer stundenlang durchgekocht. Lecker Lecker!!! Wir haben viel Spass zusammen, ...
