The More You Know...
The trains in Eastern Europe don't have conventional waste disposal systems. You "flush" right out onto the tracks. I nearly freaked out when I pressed the lever to flush and saw the trap open to reveal the ground whizzing beneath. And that is why it's actually illegal to use the toilettes at a stop. Ick!

I've made it to Budapest. Bratislava was nothing to write home about (except I wrote home to tell them that). The tour ends tomorrow. I've actually gotten used to group travel, but it'll be nice to have a few days on my own. Headed back to Prague tomorrow on an overnight train. Whee!
