Flag of Hungary  , Lake Balaton,
Friday, August 1, 2008

Druga strona Balatonu okazala sie jeszcze bardziej turystyczna i skomercjalizowana, niz ta pierwsza. Nie poszlismy sie nawet kapac, bo wstep na plaze kosztowal od 300 do 600 forintow od osoby. Cale popoludnie spedzilismy na zmiane na lawce i spacerujac po miasteczku pelnym sklepow z kiczowatymi pamiatkami. Ten dzien ciagnal sie w nieskonczonosc. Pan kataryniarz upatrzyl sobie miejsce tuz obok "naszej" lawki i gral dwie melodie przez 3 godziny. Mysle, ze sam mial zatyczki w uszach...
Rozbilismy sie na lace 2km od centrum. Bylismy zmeczeni upalem. Poszlismy spac bardzo wczesnie bo jakos okolo 21:30.

We found the other side of Balaton more tourism and commercial than the first one. We did not even go to swim, as the entrance to the beach would have cost from 300 up to 600 forints per person. We spent the whole afternoon swapping with each other in between sitting a bench or wandering around the town, full of stores with trashy souvenirs. Day day seemed to never end. A hurdy-gurdy man chose a place right next to "our" bench and he`d play two melodies over and over, for 3 hours. I think he must have worn ear plugs...
e pitched our tent in a meadow located 2km from the town`s centre. We were really tired of the heat. Went to sleep very early, about 9:30pm.
