On our first day of the river cruise we moored up at Solt which is in Hungary. We were driven over the Hungarian plains to a Horse Farm or Puszta Farm where we were given a glass of red wine and a piece of bread with pork fat and paprika on it! Not as bad as it sounds!. We were then treated to a show by the local horsemen who showed us their prowess with horses and whips. They also showed us the long horned grey cattle which are used for tilling the fields. We had a cart ride into the fields for a glass of apricot brandy and a bun and a tour round the stables where we saw close up the long horned sheep which were in the field nearby. A short pleasant trip to get us into the mood. Back to the ship for lunch and later a trivia quiz which we did not win but came second. The boat sailed off towards Croatia where we had face to face passport check with the authorities
