Travel Journal - Készthely - day 13

day 13
14th June 2012
Abbazia Hotel, Készthely

Only two days left to get back home. What a weird vacation this was. The first week in Vienna and Budapest was exhausting but fun! After we rented to car and travelled to Készthely - the first 5 days included a lot of fighting over way-finding and directions! As Dory asked, "What IS IT with men asking for directions?" They are so full of ego and stubborness. Who are they trying to prove themselves to anyway? Besides that we played a lot of Rummy (card game), plucked cherries from the backyard, shopped a lot of SPAR, and drove around to local places like the lakeside, the wonderful Herand Porcelain Museum and factory (where we saw how it is carved, painted, glazed and fired), and the local Pottery making shops. We watched the whole season 6 of 'Friends', 'Satyamev Jayate' and also 'Breakthrough with Tony Robbins'. Throughout Puppa's been all about what we call in Hindi - 'Pét Pooja'; translated - stomach worship? Lol! No really. Yes, you do get more hungry in cold regions, but I think it's mainly because there is nothing much to do here but relax. Tomorrow I will be cooking at eating asparagus for the first time. Nothing fancy - I'm just sautéing them with sliced almonds and mushrooms and hoping they'll taste good without the olive oil.

I am realy looking forward to going home and having home food and enjoying the Goan rains with my friends and speaking in English and Konkani again! I'm also kind of scared but eager to work on the Mailbox. Luckily the interest hasn't died, infact I think it's grown because I didn't get to work on it for a while. I want to put my heart and soul in this film. I'm gonna have to make a lot of changes to make it better.
