Where I stayed
Just as we were getting ready to land I heard a familiar beep beep. I realised that í must have forgotten to turn off my mobile phone. Luckily the weather was good íi was thinking so the pilot can see where he is landing
Met Gergely at the airport, he is a friend of Tamasz who owns the units that we were going to be staying at. The taxi was a very stylish new one and I was prepared to give the driver 10 out of 10 until the last minute when he approached an intersection, the light had already gone red, and about 100 meters from the light he just planted his foot . The light was already red when we made it to the intersection and we just sped straight through. Dave closed his eyes, I just held on. But we made it in one piece. The 2 units, they are rooms in an old Hungarian style building, over 100 years old had been defurbished by Gergely. Mostly in white, cream or maroon they looked great. The price was great too considering they overlooked one of the main streets.
About every 40 mins i hear an ambulance roar by and i wonder if they are off to pick up our cab driver. After having some local cuisine for dinner (chicken, cold french fries, some salad, red cabbage and some white unpleasant sause all over everything) I came back to the apartment to chat with Tamasz on MSN while Dave went for a walk. I was sooooo tired, my night before had yielded little sleep, the single bed was too thin for me, like sleeping in a cot. If the matresses had been hard it would have been better, but soft matresses mean that when i roll over near the edge of the matress i roll out of bed. Also still getting over the fact that 8.00pm at night here was really about 4.00am back at home, I was just dead to the world so I slept and slept.
