A market in Slovakia

Hi again!  Today we went to a Slovakian market [of course it was in Slovakia to be called Slovakian].  It was really fun.  I got a balloon [more like one and a half, because one was a clown-made animal balloon].  I also got to eat a bit of my Mom’s chimney cake, which was basically a cake baked into a tube [I liked it].  I tried a roasted chestnut, but I didn’t like it very much.  Fact:  this market has been held every October for 466 years!

Another fact: the border between Slovakia and Hungary is in the middle of the Danube River!!! [For a bit ,then it’s on land.]  I crossed through the river part on a big green bridge.  I forgot to mention, my mom’s cousin [I had to write that because I don’t know what that is exactly, like a grandma’s sister is a great aunt, and so on.]  It was too bad I don’t know hungarian, because that was all she spoke.  Finally we crossed the bridge again and Dad and I played with rocks.

Bye!!!!!

P.S. Has the snowplow come and made the snowdrifts on the edge of the pavement yet?

On the Danube

Hello again!!  I’m late again in writing and I’m NOT happy about it. [I’m also very very sorry.]   This post is going to be about a boat ride I took up and down the Danube River.  Here we go!!!!  On the trip, we saw both Buda and Pest.  We saw the Parliament [on the Pest side] and Buda Vár [on the Buda side].  Did I tell you how Buda and Pest were two different cities and then they became one?  Well, if I didn’t, I just did.  Back to the boat! [” back to the boat” is true, because we came back for a night cruise]  We also saw big hotels and such.  We also saw Margaret sziget [“sziget” is island in Hungarian], and there were lots and lots of other boats.  It was very, very cold; everyone bundled up in blankets.
