Of course, we were not the only ones hunting for mushrooms, although it was pretty quiet in our patch of forest. But in many places we would find little mushroom graveyards, where some expert mushroomer had already cut the best mushrooms and dismissed the rest.
You see, sadly, the worms also know which mushroom taste the best. So many mushrooms that look pretty tasty from the outside are ...
... 20 Euro. But I only got 12.50 - and the money changer didn't speak much English so I couldn't ask how she calculated that. It was all too hard so I just left, but that also annoyed me. I walked for ages trying to find the restaurant the hostel manager had recommended, and once I found it, it looked pretty average. It was buffet style, but all the food on display looked a bit dodgy.

Had he only known I was afraid of being thrown off the train, he could have asked for much, much more and I would have given it to him.
