Last night I anchored at KM 1580 or roughly 80 kms beyond Budapest. I left Budapest in the early afternoon after having taken some more pictures in the better weather and lighting. I also got a haircut and filled the diesel tank at the marina before take off. The mechanic job on the retorque of the engine bolts cost me Fifty bucks and it did not make any difference after all. Still black smoke. Anyway I know that is not the problem. The anchorage was very peaceful in another gravel pit, like the night prior to Bratislava and near Lobith on the Rhine. Right now I am in full current parked along a pontoon. I hope the traffic is not going to be to intense tonight because the boat gets thrown around violently in the passing ships wake. I had a heck of a time parking into the current. Three tries. And from now on I am going to have to this at the custom stations along the way. Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Roumania, etc.  My Guinness Book of Records entry comes with a price….. Not sure how far I get  tomorrow after checking out with the Hungarians and clearing into Serbia. Belgrade would be attainable for the weekend if it was not for the customs.

This town is just adorable. Very peaceful. The way the streets are layed out and the pastel stuccoed  houses hug together, it reminds me of  a traditional Mexican village. Very quiet and peaceful and harmonious.

The operator of the pontoon, Bela, is also the mayor of the town, fifth term…  Quite a character. Nice facility with showers, barbecue area, deck.
