Caught the early bus across the border to Tatranska Lomnica, a small town in the High Tetras mountains. My work buddy Kamil had recommended a few things for us to do here. What we managed to do was take the tram up to Skanate Pleso, a lake high up in the mountain range. Unfortunately the weather has not been on or side. At the top we were completely covered in clouds. Still managed to have a nice lunch at the restaurant at the top. I managed to make friends with a cat that lives up here, he certainly did not want to see me go. Don't tell Jackson, he's already angry enough at us! After coming down wee took the electric railroad, which links many mountain towns to Stary Smokovec, to go out for dinner. We had a nice dinner and Linda was quite enjoying the Slovakian wine. Turns out it was actually Slovakian moonshine. Anyway it was me that ended up dancing with a large Slovakian lady, mainly because Linda was getting a little tipsy and was giving the rest of her moonshine away. I had to get Linda out of there as we still had to make it back by train to our hotel. We made it back safe and it was a fun evening out. The Slovaks we have met our pretty nice, even if we can't understand each other.
