So yeah, I arrived right on time, and then took a couple of minutes to go ahead and book my ticket for my bus ride tomorrow to Budapest (just under 6 euros, super cheap, I think). Then I went to look for my CS host and waited...
I freaked out a bit, since I couldn't communicate with her for whatever reason; every time I rang her from the public phones I would get an error message, but after about 40 minutes, and me freaking out, I was finally able to reach her via a nice man's cellphone, and she was just arriving, so we finally met up and went to her apartment, where I met her boyfriend, who was really nice as well.
We hung out for a bit, playing some guitar and talking, and then went out in the freeeezing weather to a small bar with some live rock cover band playing. We had a couple of beers and went home a bit later.
Then this morning, they went to work, and I left around 11:30am or so, trying to wait out the rain, which never went away (and still hasn't gone away). I had quite a wet day, walking around a bit of the old town, and into a really nice church and it's catacombs.
Then I rested at a KFC to have some soul food and relax for an hour or so, away from the rain, and then walked a bit more, and am now finally able to get online at a restaurant with some wifi. I'll head back "home" in about half an hour, since I should arrive by the time my host is back from work.
Tomorrow, if it doesn't rain so damned much, I'll do a bit more walking, or I might just relax... better than walking around with wet feet, freezing in Bratislava... we'll see.
Then, off to Budapest at night, where I should meet up with Dirk (a German friend I met in Peru who's living there now), with whom I'll stay the next week, before flying to Paris.
