“Travels to a Different Time” : 2June1975: Tokaj, Hungary: Prisoner of the Rain; Horking up a Fish Bone Caught in My Throat

Yet more rain so I will stay in my shanty town shack for another day. I still have Hungarian currency I need to spend. Performed my morning ablutions and hit the town where I trudged to the other restaurant in town for lunch. I seemed to be surrounded by bureaucrats on their lunch break. I started off with some fish soup and unfortunately, I had a fish bone stuck in my throat. I went to the washroom and horked it out. Too noisy and rude to do this in public. I had a slight panicky feeling wondering if I became seriously ill in the middle of nowhere what sort of medical care is available? The fish soup was very spicy and a cold beer was needed to put out the fire. I continued on with fried fish and potatoes and lunch was $2. I came home to shanty town and read and had a nap. At 6:30 I headed out for my last Hungarian dinner which was a pork cutlet, potatoes and two cherry vodkas. Exciting person that I am as in bed at 20:30. Off to Czechoslovakia tomorrow!
