Sojourn in Slovakia: Day 6 (Part 1)

I was awakened the next morning by the rooster. His cock a doodle-do-ing sounded like he was quite close by. It was hot and humid and I was quickly reminded about how spoiled I am having central air conditioning in my own home.

After a light breakfast of some homemade bread and butter with coffee (I could barely eat another bite after enjoying all the wonderful food from the day before) we were set to leave to pick up another Alzo cousin (Helen) and then head on to a restaurant (Cafe Restaurant Junior) in Vranov where Renata had made lunch reservations. The restaurant was lovely and we had our own private room for lunch--the table looked like it was set for a very fancy party.




Renata's sister joined us. Everyone said that if my hair was longer we could be twins!

Then, it was time to eat again! We ordered off the menu. I had a shot of pear vodka and a delicious combination of haluski, pirohy and potato pancakes. Then for dessert, palacinka.





We spent the entire afternoon discussing family connections, looking at photographs and just enjoying the visit.

OK, Lisa. Now my stomach is growling again. I'm sure you brought back enough for everyone, though. You did, didn't you?
