Aug 27, 2006
Didn't really get up to much today as was kinda just hanging around waiting to get the overnight train to Prague. Went to the Statue Park on the outskirts of Budapest and took lotsa photos of old communist statues. Was going to go to Gellert Baths but didnt really feel up to it although it would have probably done me good. My cold/sore throat has returned - sloshing around in cold water for an hour or so of a nighttime is obviously not good for the constitution. Eventually got on the night train after it was delayed an hour and after having an argument with some random woman, me in English her presumably in Hungarian, about me sneezing in her vicinity!! I was sneezing into a hanky what more do you want? As I told her if you dont like it you can piss off and stand somewhere else!! Sleeping car was a welcome refuge, there was one other girl in it on the bottom bunk so although I was booked in on the top bunk (which was quite unnervingly high up!) I slept in the middle one which was much better and I managed to get some sleep in spite of an inordinately high number of passport checks... And so to my final destination of Prague.....
