Saturday 14 July
Woke up at 7am by security and cycled into town and ate breakfast under cover as it was drizzling. Next town tried to get some some cash from bank but not working so local called on dodgy money changer to help so he changed 20 dollars on the street. Climbed out of the town with Lehel having to push in places. Good views on top and I started to ask about where to cross into Romania as it was looking problematic and effected our route. Found Ukrainian English couple who were over helpful, making calls to friends to look on internet. In the end they asked some other people who said there was a new crossing at Solotvyna. Descended following river through horse and cart poor area and past dam where the road was a dirt track in places past more memorials, plastic bottled river banks and the occasional T-45 tank. Into Bustyna where we ate outside watching a few weddings. Found a few possible camping sites, then back into town to find a drink in Hungarian speaking gypsy bar. Lehel appeared to be randy, sloshed and slightly out of control, as we cycled into the dark through meadow. Tent up, undressed and to bed.
