I apologize for not having written in awhile. I've been doing a lot of traveling these past couple of weeks.
On September 26, I traveled by bus for four hours to meet a friend in Bratislava. I sat at the very back of the bus where there are five seats instead of the usual two on each side. So, I was one of three people on the entire bus sitting next to two people. The luck right? It turned out, I ended up sitting next to a very nice lady who taught me Cesky for two hours. She said that she also enjoyed practicing her english. Unfortunately, she got off the bus at Brno. A friendly hispanic man took her seat. He was from Mexico and was traveling around Europe for two years to teach dance. I arrived in Bratislava and had to buy a ticket to travel by a city bus to the botel. The friendly hispanic man gave me coins, since I only had bills. With some wondering around, I found the stop for my bus and soon after, arrived at the Botel Marina! http://www.botelmarina.sk/en/
It was now 11am. My friend wasn't arriving until 5pm. So, I had some time to kill! I decided to do some sketching.. and thought the Bratislava Castle would be a good choice! I found a nice spot sitting backwards on a bench next to a path along the Danube River.
I also walked along the river and came across this building:
My friend finally arrived and we took a hike up to the Bratislava Castle! I am the little scale figure in the second photo.
The next day, we had lunch in the UFO restaurant above the Novy Most bridge. Wow, what a view! The food was very delicious as well. I ordered the salmon and gnocci. There was also a lookout deck above the restaurant where we took some nice photos of Bratislava.
