Hoy en día (165)

Orilla del Oravica, Montañas Eslovacas

Un castillo de cuento, un zoo con elefantes meones, un restaurante con platos de 650g… me está gustando este país.

He pasado un total de 16 horas en tren este fin de semana, pero ha merecido la pena. Nos metimos en una casa particular que alquila habitaciones (como todas las del pueblo), cenamos en el restaurante que nos dijo el dueño de la casa (“los demás son unos ladrones”) y tomamos cervezas en una krcma (tasca para los amigos). El primer grupo para visitar el castillo era a las 11 (no se visita sin guía), así que mientras nos fuimos a ver el zoo, con sus monos, sus osos, sus elefantes meando… El castillo parece el de Disney, reformado por un romántico que además de nadar en dinero se quedó sin novia (se casó con otro que tardó menos en reformar la casa, supongo). Y todavía tuvimos tiempo para ver como Antonio ligaba con la camarera del mismo restaurante de la noche anterior, mientras Hana y yo nos comíamos un plato de 650g de carne cada uno.

Nowadays (165)

Oravica Riverside, Slovakian Mountains

A fairy tale castle, a zoo with peeing elephants, a restaurant with 650g dishes… I like this country.

I spent 16 hours on trains this weekend, but it was worthy. We got into a family house with room rentals (as all of them in town), had dinner at the restaurant our host told us (“the others are thieves”) and had beers at a krcma (bar). The first tour to visit the castle was at 11 am (no visit without a guide), so meanwhile we visited the zoo, with its monkeys, its bears, its peeing elephants… The castle looks like Disney’s, reformed by a romantic who, besides swimming in money lost his girlfriend (she married another guy who spent less time in reforming his house, I guess). And we still had time to see how Antonio flirted with the waitress at the same restaurant the night before, while Hana and I had a 650g meat dish each one.
