Later on, the route moved away from the river, and I found myself going through rustic villages and lovely farmland where the harvest was in full swing. The guide warned that there weren't many places to eat along the way, so I took the opportunity to stop in one village where there was a restaurant (and quite a few bikes outside)
In the early evening I stopped in another village where a Hungarian who'd spent the afternoon drinking tried to get me involved in a dispute between him and the other patrons - most of whom appeared to have spent the afternoon similarly. (I'd stayed all day on the Slovakian side of the river which forms the border between the two countries, and I gathered there is some patriotic rivalry)
Eventually, weary from the long ride, I found my Hotel in the rather bleak shipbuilding town of Komarno.
