Stayed somewhere down there.
No internet, no phone connection - seems like only Pannon network is there - no internet, no television, and the heating system is just by burning wood. The first night was indeed terribly cold because we just made the fire in the evening so it wasn't long enough to heat up the whole place. The walls were too cold. Fortunately enough though the bathroom was renovated so we could have warm showers.
It took me 20 minutes to get the fire on. 20 more minutes to get the stove to the temperature hot enough to cook. I had to constantly feed wood to the fire.
This is it, a couple of city folks trying to live the life of country people. I bet the next door neighbours in the village never even seen this sort of stove for ages. LOL Nevertheless, since I worked hard on making the fire, those were the best fried eggs I've ever eaten.
The duck family that we went to visit everyday. We don't get to see real life farm animals in the city everyday. So it was a treat for Bonnie. She could look at them for hours. Or trying to catch the father duck. :)
These are not grapes, they are called ribizlis. Sour fruit but people usually make jams out of them.
Our first bbq. Okay not our first but the first one that we ever prepared ourselves. :)
The fields were like oceans of wheats. There are a few main crops that I saw frequently. Wheat, corn and 'biofuel plant' which for the life of me I cannot remember the name.
Wheat on one side, 'biofuel plants' on the other.
Pheasant bird we saw. There were many. We were lucky enough to see a wild deer too. Some people may say it's nothing. But we thought it was cool. :P
Then the day before we came back, we drove up North to Slovakia for a short day trip. Didn't go too far but just till Modry Kamen. Went up to the old Castle of Modry Kamen or Blue rock that was also a Museum. There was the lady who was selling souvernirs there which only spoke in Slovak. But my husband tried to speak to her in Hungarian, forgetting that we were not in Hungary. "We are not in Hungary anymore, Toto". Felt good that I was not the only foreigner there. Hah!
We didn't go on a tour of the castle though cause we didn't have time further it was raining heavily. Couldn't even take good picture of the castle ground. Yup, it started raining as soon as we parked the car. *sigh* Since it seemed quite nearby to just drive there, perhaps we'd go there in the Summer. Look forward to it. :)
