Vacation to Lake Balaton, Hungary
I suppose I have not yet made it to Romania.
Rather, I was got held up in a delightful net in Budapest and, deeming that it would be silly to peddle all the way to Romania just to turn around and peddle all the way back, I decided that I would take a vacation to Lake Balaton.
I am no longer surprised at my own sporadically itinerant Path. I do not even know where I am going.
I was offered a little paid employment in Budapest and, like any work scrounging vagabond, I took it. I got pretty well paid, too. But, as money is ultimately made to spend, I promptly blew my earnings on comfortable living and set up my tent (good fortune – or two spoiled Brits – had provided me with a real tent) in the expensive campgrounds of Lake Balaton. Life is good.
I have just been relaxing, swimming, exercising, riding my bicycle leisurely, and enjoying these days before I enter the concrete inferno of New York City.

But I think some exterior events also occurred in my delay in Budapest that may have altered my Path in a larger capacity. . . . but dear friends and readers, I will have to write more of this later, as I am now on vacation.
Affordable internet scarce here, and I think that I am the better for it.
Taking a break, resting, relaxing, reading, reveling, meditating, pondering, reflecting, writing funny little poems to please myself, contemplating, swimming, not talking. Enjoying my week long vacation.
