Lake Balaton

On the way between Budapest and Ljubljana, we stopped for lunch at Lake Balaton, a resort location in western Hungary. Lake Balaton is a huge, shallow lake (the largest in Central Europe), and its emerald green color was shown off to advantage on this bright, sunny day. The beach and streets were filled with European tourists enjoying watersports, swimming, fishing, and sunbathing.

We had time to take a stroll along the lake and grab lunch in a local cafe. The lakefront is crowded with little Hungarian restaurants, mostly serving pizza.

After stopping for lunch, we headed on our way to Ljubljana. Tomorrow morning we’ll go on a city tour, and then in the evening have our performance in Ljubljana Cathedral! Here’s one more picture of a choir member enjoying herself along the lake today before I sign off for the evening:
