A long day across Hungary’s flat plain crossing from Poland to Slovenia and on into Hungary. How many Slovakians and Hungarians does it take to help 2 illiterate American tourists buy a road permit?? Too many to name, thank enough or count! The countryside throughout the day was glorious, verdant and colorful. Since it was May Day, a national holiday, everyone seemed to be either planting their gardens or working their fields.
Debrecene is just a nights stay, a way point, It used to be Europe’s largest Calvinist city (was called “The Calvinist Rome”) and we saw the Grand Church (Nagytemplom) which is a reminder of the city’s heritage.
Debrecen is also home to a university with about 25,000 students.
