Working on our scrapbook on the train

We are in Essen to visit my uncle and his family for a couple of days. The German sleeping train wasn'nt as nice as their day trains, but I can't complain. While we didn't get a two person couchette on board, our roommates ended up being a nice family from Australia - Melbourne (no, unfortunately not the Bongiornos, though the guy reminded me very much of Johnny...)

Arriving at 6 am, we were picked up by Laci, after scooting around Essen in the morning, taking care of our reservation for the train to Paris, and after a hearty meal, we are now lounging around in a leafy suburb. We are planning to do a little walk this afternoon, and a visit to Dusseldorf or Cologne tomorrow and are moving on to France Thursday morning.

Ma reggel megerkeztunk Essenbe. LAci mar vart a palyaudvaron, es egy delelotti laza varosnezes, vonatjegy-intezes es ebed utan most naluk ejtozunk. Holnap meg belefer egy vizit Kolnbe vagy Dusseldorfba, aztan irany Parizs es a jovo het elejen London.
