Boy what a boring ride through plain countryside. Everything is a little more spread out here in Hungary. You don't get the quaint little village every 3 kilometers it's more like every ten and then there isn't much to look at. Every town seems to have the same yellow church and futuristic silver water tower. The roads are pretty bad as well. Chrissy enjoys what she calls Frogger as she dodges pot holes and crumbling asphalt. On the bright side, Chrissy's fruit seeking eagle eyes spotted us lots of cherries and mulberries in the trees. We found many cherry trees with fruit quality of the grocery store. It certainly brightened a monotonous day.
So we're approaching Lake Balaton where we were going to camp when we heard some traditional hungarian whip cracking taking place at this restaurant. We checked the prices and it was right up our alley. We were entertained by horses, whip cracking, traditional dancing, music at the tables. What's funny is that we spend all day biking through hungary seeing one thatched roof and one Stork (we took a picture of them) and asking ourselves where is all the tradition we read about. Then we find this tourist trap restaurant that appeases all our desires.
