We're getting ready to leave Hungary to hit Slovakia for a day. Our time here has been nice. There's not much to do here other than hang around and soak up the culture and eclectic architecture, which by the way is very rich although very beat up since they've been beat down in war over and over again in their very complex history.
The highlight of my trip was visiting the baths. I went to the largest complex called Szechenyi which had about 20 different pools of different temperatures plus a large Olympic sized pool. Some were outside and some were inside and they're all fed by a natural mineral spring. I also got a massage which was a great treat!
...Okay so we were walking out of the hostel this morning all packed and prepared and the lovely Hungarian hostel girl informed us that we paid for another night. After checking our schedule we realized she was right. So we had another day here! At first we were wondering what the hell was left to do but we decided to rent and ride bikes for 6 hours and tour the city a little more. We had a great day except when Chris got stung in the tongue by a bee-ish type bug. So we topped the day off with 4 shots of Absinthe. Wooo!
TOMORROW we're going to Bratislava! They have Absinthe too.
