We ate Austrian dessert with espresso, 2.5Euro.
I couldn't remember the sweets name though, this is Ausrtian sweets.
But Katrin said this is not real, not so good.
I haven't tried it before, so I don't know the real one.
Katrin paid it for me, thank you!!!

There was not so enough time to go to train station, I said thank you and good bye to Katrin, I headed to station quickly.

t10080821.jpg

Bratislava~Bdapest 14.20Euro

Not so expensive, I paid it by credit card.

I can ride on the train...
When I checked the platform in board,,,

t10080823.jpg
I can't imagine that,,, 80min delay!?

Am I in India...?

(In Japan, the train time table is always correct on time.)

t10080824.jpg
I waited 80min, then I rode on the train, I couldn't get a seat because of much people, also many people even in a side way.

Yeah, here was India...

Just I sat down beside of a door, I was writing a blog sitting on a steps.

Budapest Keleti

I arrived at 7:45pm on East station, Budapest, I headed to meeting point with Luka who accepted me as couch surfer.

I headed there looking my Japanges guidebook though, I got lost a bit, besides it took me 40min to to there...
Too much walking...!

I met Luka, he took me his house, I put my baggage on his house, we went out together.

t10080826.jpg
Building is light up.
This is like a Budapest!

t10080827.jpg
We had a conversation with wine with sparkling water.

But he asked me about eating whale and dolphin(!?) or don't I feel scared eating puffer fish, so my feeling was not good...
So are you thinking all Japanese are eating whale and dolphin???
Actually, I've never eaten whale and dolphin in my life.
I have eaten puffer fish maybe twice in my life though, I never thought about I'll be died, because the proffesional cooker who has license just can cook the fish.
Normal people never cook the puffer fish by theirselves.

There are a lot of people eating fish, pork, chicken, beef and sheep, even in Australia they eat kangaroo.
So if you are not vegetarian, everyone are eating some animal's life.
But we are living in animal world, big animal like a lion eats other animals, bit fish also eats small fish.
So this is a world.

You can come to Japan and you can see by your eyes, travel around the world by yourself, make a lot of friends in the world.
We can learn a lot of things by ourselves, not from TV or Internet.

By the way 2 girls from Lithuania joined our tabel.
They were traveler by hitch-hiking and sleeping in tent around 3 weeks!
Even tognight, they didn't have a bed!! What a awesome!!!
They were friendly and interesting talking, I was impressed.
I am still like a baby traveler.

We went back to house, I did Thai massage to Luka, then I went to bed.
I walked a lot today, I feel my body hurts...
