In one of the Christmas Markets we visited we had a baked apple. While you may thing, yeah - whatever - a hot baked apple with cinnamon, raisins, rum and sugar in 30 degree bone chilling weather is VERY awesome. PJ had medovina (hot honey liquor), i opted for the less alcohol version of a hot chocolate.
We came back and had lunch in one of the local pubs
Later that evening we went to a train station bar. apparently it had been covered in USSR propaganda but it had all been taken down by the time i walked in. the walls are now a lovely shade of peach. PJ was devastated. After a beer there we went to another pub to meet up with Lee (PJ's flatmate). I got a first-hand look at what happens when bartenders do not exercise their right to cut people off from alcohol. Lots of loud, kissing, arm wrestling folk. Then, i had to try some shot. I forget what it's called but it smelled a little like nutmeg and that's where the pleasantness ended. YUCK. but i drank a little anyway. :)
OK, i have to get dressed and ready for our next adventure. bye!!
