Budapest was by far my favorite stop so far. Gergos, the guy we stayed with, is now employed at his old university after having studied horticulture there and in the US. His father allowed us to stay in an empty flat he owns, which was small but good to have. Gergos showed us around in a Trabant! This was my favorite part, everyone on the streets stared. Even though they once were so popular, now they are a rare sight. Gergos knew a lot of history of Budapest. The last morning we were there his younger brother joined us and we again drove around in the Trabant, this time up the mountains on the Buda side of the river.
There was not much to do in Bratislava at all! So I won't devote more time to writing about it now, as we are about to go out of Vienna aways to vineyards where you can eat dinner. After Poland for a few days we will return to Slovakia, to a small town called Zilina (Gelina) then will go back to Prague, and some smaller cities south of Prague called Budejovice and Ceske Krumlov. I am really excited about this, because this is where Justin lived years ago and I've been hearing a lot about them!
Sorry I haven't had many chances to write! I will be able to more once back in Prague! Love you all
