Sojourn in Slovakia: Day 8 (Part 1)

I woke up early on Thursday - our final full day in Slovakia. I had to finish packing and we wanted to clean up a bit around the house. I was sure wishing we had another week or at least a few more days.

Our host, Stevo, came to meet us and then we went to Presov. There was a street fair going on with all types of vendors--food, clothing, jewelry, and more. We bought a few souvenirs and took some photographs. Andy snapped this picture of one of the "babas" near her booth.

We then drove to the home of Alzbeta and Cyril-they were having a lunch for us. Alzbeta gave us some lovely gifts--lace doilies she made and some candy. The lunch was delicious--sandwiches, some berries (said to be medicinal) and pastries.

Cyril brought out some homemade Slivovitz (it sure had a kick but it sure was smooth going down). We then left to visit Marta and Pavel to say "farewell" - they showered us with so many gifts! After hugs, and some tears, we then left with Stevo to head to Kosice where we would stay that evening in preparation for our departure.
