Gate in Hainburg Austria


As we said goodbye to Austria we were into Slovakia  and Eastern Europe before even noticing a border crossing. Freedom of movement is now a reality in Europe and only traces are left of the Iron Curtain that cut of the Eastern Block from the West. 

Old town in Bratislava
It was a rainy day today, but only our third  on this entire trip. At our Pension in Gabcikovo we dove into a fabulous meal of Hungarian Goulash. Even though we are in Slovakia the Hungarian population is significant here. We chanced upon the town’s bread or harvest festival with lots of folk dancing featuring much boot slapping and twirling. Small children passed around bread and grapes to the masses gathered there to watch.
