Next Day
One more day in bed for me. Jill has run to the Russian embassy and retrieved our passports. We have the visas we'll need to visit Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Russia. It's a pain (and expensive - average of $60 per visa) to pull all of these visas together. Our experience is that every embassy, even ones that represent the same country, varies its procedures and costs depending on the host country. What has been the country with the most relaxed embassies? Ethiopia.
One last night on the town with Zoltan, our excellent host.
You can find the world's fanciest McDonalds in Budapest's train station.
