Up early to breakfast of plums on the terrace with the two families. Left and cycled round village to old wooden water mill, next to telegraph poll storks nest, then towards border past huge trees on a meadow blown over by high winds the previous week. Stopped to have a closer look and past an orchard, stopped to have a closer look. At border had to fill in visa form and into Ukraine for Hungarian monument to some battle they won. Brought map and off past fantastic bus stops (massive constructions of reinforced concrete) and soviet war memorials (massive constructions of reinforced concrete). Stopped again at interesting building and Lehel spoke to the Hungarian speaking 3 generations of women residents who gave us some water around a table for a local history lesson. They said about local Jewish winery owning family, who had since moved on, taken over by state then closed. Continued on our way through new vineyards, so someone must be investing
