There was really just one thing left to do before leaving, visit the UN and the IAEA ((International Atomic Energy Agency)). So we made off for the northeast end of Vienna. On the way we managed to find Puntigamer, an Austrian beer that my friend Marissa suggested we look up.
IAEA Meeting Room
Can you understand me now? Good.
Our host was nice, but very optimistic about the United Nations efforts. I wish we still had the League of Nations if only for the reason that it had a cooler name.
We made our way back to the hostel, collected our things, and then raced ((if you haven’t figured out by now, we always race to catch trains. We always caught them, but were usually within 5 minutes of missing them)) to catch our next rain to Budapest.
It so happened that Charlie was also coming in from Switzerland right around the time we were leaving. I was secretly hoping that we would see Charlie and kidnap him. Unfortunately, we didn’t see him.
We got into Budapest late at night. We stumbled around while trying to find an ATM so I could get some Forint ((yet another unit of money to deal with)). We finally managed to find an ATM and withdraw some money. A short subway ride later, we at our hostel.
