Emily and I are having a splendid time on our mini-vacation which we needed after failed 4th of July excursion. I took the day off yesterday and we meet our good friends John and Jamie at a cute town near Hungary's famous Lake Ballaton (the largest lake in Europe). Yesterday, we went to the sixth largest "strand" in Hungary which is like a municiple pool meets water park. It sounds lame, but was actually pretty fun. They had both indoor and outdoor pools for the full year round experience. They also had water slides that were surprisingly fun.
Today we have been hanging out at the "beach" town of Keszthely. Hungary does not have a proper coast but they pretend their lake is an ocean with beach towns to prove it. Here is a shot of the lake. It is suposedly a well known place to go sailing ( a not too subtle hint to JP an and Katie ;)).
