balatonkenese – rest day

i thought about leaving here this morning, but i caught a cold because of the cold wind the last couple days and i had to do some organisation because of the changed plan. the good thing about the internet “speed” here is, that it leaves you enough time to think (and rethink….) what you really want to write in an email. 😉 and it puts you totally in command if you consider it really important to see pages on the www or not. so you will not get mislead by an overwhelming amount of informations which seems to brainwash you every split second.
