Your personal deity,
Heya everyone and stuff. We are now in Budapest, can't say too much about it yet because we just got in about 2 hours ago. We did meet up with Tyler and Danielle though. They are a couple from Canada and we have got an apartment with them for a bit. Okay since Berlin we went to Trier and saw the World Rally Race there and all I can say is that is was pretty amazing. Imagine sitting up in the vineyards of the Mosel Region of Southwest Germany eating grapes and watching cars flying down narrow roads inches from your body. Just in case you care (and I know you probably don't) Ford won the race with Loeb driving and I think that Carlos Sainz only got 5th. Sainz is still way cooler though. We also managed to get a beautiful souvenir while in Trier. The evening after the last day of the race we went into the city center and stole the huge flag for the race. The flag is about 10' x 3' and really nice. We also have some wonderful pictures of us driving with the rally drivers in our little Peugot 206. Yeah Baby! It was pretty sweet. After the race we made some record time hitching back to Belgium and met up with Gaston again. While there Tamara brought home a pet chicken that she almost hit with the Renault. Nancy (the chicken) was terribly cool, she followed you like a dog and ate from your hands and sat in your lap. It was pretty sad when we had to say goodbye and left for Hungary. We also made record time traveling about 2000 km. in 40 hours. Plus while on the ride we were fed three times and got a few liters of beer. So now we are in Budapest and we have roommates and tonight we will go out for a little food and get to know our new peoples. Tomorrow is trips to the bathhouses and massages all for dirt cheap. I know everyone at home is now very jealous. Anyway we have to also find Tamara's grandparents house here and then oh, maybe get another massage. So a few days here and we will be off to Romania to see Cluj-Napoca and down to see all things Vlad the Impaler related. Okay, Uhmmm, I have some beers waiting so I will write again later.
