(70 miles)
Today we got off to a slow start. It was cold and rainy. Our muscles weren't really working. We visited Kethzley the town and found ourselves eating pizza in a warm restaurant where they had internet maybe even before noon.

Once we got motivated we followed a bike path part way around lake balaton. There were not a lot of opportunities to see the lake from the path but it was nice to be off the busy road and to see some nicer neighborhoods and small towns. Once we left the lake however it was similar to the prior day with some additional trials. A guy yelled at us for standing in the road looking at our map despite the fact it was a deserted small town with wide roads and plenty of room to go around. We also had a group of young guys spit on us. Also our country road at one point turned into a treacherous dirt road for 3 km. It soon turned into mud and was a real mess.

When we show up at our decided campsite they tell us it's $30 which is insane and 3 times what we've seen elsewhere. To finish our trial filled day we camped in a ditch.

The worst trial of all was that we wouldn't be able to make church tomorrow in Pecs as we didn't make it anywhere near as far as we needed to.
