I find myself in the small town of Sumeg at the moment with its imposing medieval castle sitting atop a limestone cliff. Thankfully, we had some rain last night which cooled things down for me. I had short run in with a snake at the castle yesterday (don't worry, it was live but in a basket)...freaky looking all the same. This morning around 5am, I was awaken by the sound of a rather enthusiastic rooster...definitely something you don't run across living well north of the Arctic Circle.

Tomorrow I look forward to catching my first glimpse of Lake Balaton.
