... which they won from Canada by .04 second. It was a joyous occasion .
It is a little sad that it is all over and because the paddlers are from all over Australia we won't see them till nationals. Some wonderful friendships have been made.
Well it is goodbye to Szeged. Last night we had a team gathering with everybody having drinks for the first time. It went to the head very quickly. Kel ...
... I think, so far. The best ever result and we still have one more day of racing.
Haven't been able to see much of Szeged as we went to the race venue at 7.15 am this morning and returned to the hotel at 7 pm. Just too tired to walk into town after dinner.
The thing about this level of competition is that it is all encompassing. There is not much time for anything else. Even being a spectator is exhausting.
The temperature here is very hot and quite draining. Hungarians are lovely people but they haven't discovered yet about the dangers of the sun. They were marshalling the teams an hour before the race and expecting them to stand in 30+ degree heat and got vey upset when the teams kept going to the shade.

... anyhow. No buses. It seems Romania is a no go area. They don't like them at all ( took our land after WW1 ). Everywhere I asked just gave me the cold shoulder and "good luck".

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Tisza Szeged
This hotel was good but the only room available at the time was a triple with 3 single beds. The shower was a cubicle in the corner with no privacy. As there was 2 of us we just took turns having a shower while the other went out for 5 mins. The toilets were outside in the hallway. The main problem was, that night their wi-fi was not working and whenever I enquired about any hotel, the first question was....got wi-fi?
