Leslie & have have really enjoyed our 13 days in Romania and have made many new friends. It is doubtful we will return but will never forget how great these people have treated us during our short visit.
Our entry to Hungary was someone predictable, archaic border crossings with a lengthy processing procedure, not too sure what they are looking for or having to enter in their computer system for us to be granted access. What we really find strange is how you are grilled by both the country your are entering and the country you are leaving in offices just meters apart. To me it appears like another useless government bureaucracy.
You wouldn't notice much difference leaving one country and entering the other with the exception of no horse and wagons on the highways in Hungary, at least to this point. The countryside appears a little more affluent but not by much. We arrived in Debrecen 3 hours earlier than expected in spite of the 40 minute delay at the border. The apartment was a little disappointing and Leslie informed me that she will be handling the booking from this point on. I must admit, she has done a fantastic job as our official tour guide and accommodation consultant. I have been meaning to point out one thing on our blogs over the past few years but keep forgetting. I make no apologies for the 1000's of churches we have photos of in our album link. Leslie has a thing about churches and cathedrals and I think we are close to having a photo of every church in the world. We are now going to try to fall asleep in our scorching hot apartment. Usually our criteria for choosing accommodation is private bath, secure parking, internet, air conditioning and spotless housekeeping.
