“Travels to a Different Time” :31May1975: Budapest, Hungary: Marian Acts Snooty

Up at 09:00 and returned some bottles for a deposit refund. I then went to IZBUZ to change my remaining Austrian schillings. They like roast chicken in Budapest so I went to one of these chicken places where you stand and eat it. Half a chicken and a Pepsi for $1.25. The skin was too salty but otherwise it was tasty and the fries as well. Back home at 3 to read for a couple of hours and then back to the same self serve I ate at yesterday. As arranged I met Alzam. We were at the floating disco at 8 and as there are lines of people waiting to get in I greased a palm and we skipped the line. There was Marian sitting with friends. Last night we got along so well now I get the cold shoulder. She acted very snooty. Being a bit peeved we didn’t stay that long. We met a couple of Alzam’s friends one who was Nigerian and the other a rather plump Hungarian. We found a cozy little tavern with only locals. We went to another club which had live gypsy music. We caught the last tram home and boy were they ever speeding along. I guess the conductor was in to return home and get some sleep. There certainly is some night life in Budapest! This spending must cease as I am averaging $10 a day!
