It had finally come time to say goodbye to Hungary, just not quite as quickly as we had planned! Having reached the Hungarian border crossing we appeared to be having difficulties with the Border police, who spoke very little English.

... would start to eat a vegetable garden and (normally) an old women would come out with a stick or broom and start hitting the cows and (I'm assuming) shouting abuse in Ukrainian. Its a really nice sight and they all wear little bells so you get a lovely tinkling sound as they pass by. I encountered one such cow busy throwing a hissy fit in the middle of the road, I named this one "stroppy cow" it didn't want to move and just stared at people and cars as they tried to get round ...
