We stopped for lunch at a local restaurant for lunch where we were all astounded by the portion sizes - they were huge!! My dad had so much food that he had to eat his salad from his lap. And the meal that Brian and Erick ordered seemed to arrive in serving dishes you would use at Thanksgiving. We were all stuffed, and made our way back to the train and back to the hotel to rest before dinner.
We had dinner in a rather odd restaurant that had an Escalade hanging upside down from the ceiling. Apparently Madonna had driven it. There were other things on the walls, including a jacket some guy had been wearing when he was attacked by a bear. Odd. Me and Erick and Claire ordered Tatra Tea to start the meal, and it's not the kind of tea you're thinking of. Tatra Tea comes in a shot glass and this one comes as 52%2525 alcohol. It was yummy! And it warmed me up! Most everyone was still full from lunch and had light meals. I had traditional Slovak cabbage soup with mushrooms and smoked meat, and a salad, and both were delicious.
Everyone seemed to be ready for some packing and an early night. Breakfast tomorrow is at 7:30 and departure is at 8:00. Destination: Budapest!
