A lunch stop on the way from Prague to Budapest. Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia, the other half of the former Czechoslovakia.
Typical Czech dinner of roast pork, sauerkraut & dumplings. The dumplings are the actually sliced doughy stuff and not the chinese "dumplings" I was accustomed to. Their food is mostly meaty & not much imagination. After a while, we had to go for some Italian stuff and finally some Chinese in Vienna. More shots of food during the tour are found here.
And here we are....touchdown Munich! Start of a 10-day tour of eastern Europe which will cover Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria & back to Germany.
Our taxi was rolling on to the hotel at 120kmh but on the slower lane. Seconds later, an Audi whizzed past at 180kmh. The Ethiopian taxi driver welcomed us to the autobahn.....where the speed is limited to the power of your car.....
