Bratislava – 6: Bohmerland, transport and the Next Apache

The transport museum in Bratislava was great: not only because the exhibits were interesting, but also it was ‘manned’ by people who were the collectors and restorers: such as the guy who collected Bohmerland motorbikes!

From there we returned (yet again!) to Next Apache where we heard an album by a Slovakian singer, called Dan Barta, which was excellent, and which we subsequently bought in a shop that sold wine, CD’s and books!

Bratislava – 2: hot coffee in noisy cups…. and garlic soup.

Woke to -5ºC, little hot water and no hot food left on the buffet…. great start!! But things got better, we found Next Apache where we drank coffee out of big cups which strangely made a comforting ‘clonking’  sound; like something out of a different era: like stirring a ‘vat of goodness’!

After two hours of sketching, guilt drove us to our next location where we ate cream of garlic soup! protection against colds and vampires.

(Neologism: ‘blood clot’ – stupid vampire)
