Monday 9 July
Up at 5 absolutely pissed and knackered from packing till 1am after drinking with Zsuzsa after hash on day 0. Cycled to train station arrived early with Lehel already there. Brought food and ticket and caught late train, changing at Debrecen, to Fehergyarmat and then cycled to camp site at Turistvandi. Set up tent and ate in Britain loving owners cafe, joined by Atilla and family, drank and bed.

Tuesday 10 July
Woken up early by Lehel, went to local shop and brought some bread and milk and had avocado on bread for first time...delicious. Packed tent away, hired canoe and cycled to where Atilla and family were staying. Took canoe back as it wasn't needed as Atilla's brother in law decided not to canoe. Canoed down Tiza river, stopped at sand bank for a swim, met Hungarian US marine, runner and ate at tourist trap restaurant. Went to Icon cemetery at Tarpa where the gravestones are effigies like easter island. Monument to Hungarian national anthem writer who lived locally. Lehel found some fruit trees so we picked lots of plums of various colours. Back to house and played footy in front garden with Atillas son and then walked to campsite to pay for canes. We couldn't go in as they thought we'd moved on as it was a tad expensive. Picked some beers up from dodgy locals place and then drank them on the terrace eating Lehel's nuts. To bed slightly sloshed but at least it was a bed.
