Hi it’s Henry. A couple of weeks ago we were in Budapest, Hungary. While we were there we went to the pinball museum (which is more an arcade then a museum). All the games and pinball machines were set to free play so we did not have to pay. And I beat Max at Mortal Kombat 2… 47 times. My dad, my brother, and I played an awesome X-Men game together and blew up Magneto’s spaceship. After, we went to a Turkish restaurant and got kebabs. Then we went to an ice cream place and after we went home and watched SpongeBob until bedtime.
The next day we went to the Houdini House and there was a magic show and a lot of cool stuff about Harry Houdini (Ehrich Weiss).
Then we took the tram to the climbing gym and went bouldering. Then we went home and watched TV.
The next day we went to Tihany, and stayed in a house with a trampoline. There was a dog named Mano and a rabbit that bit me and a cat.
Then we went to Ljubljana and stay in an airb&b with a trampoline and we met some kids who spoke some English that lived below us. The next day we went to Ljubljana castle and went on a time machine tour. We heard a story about a knight named Erazem Lueger who was a political prisoner who escaped through the toilet, too bad it never works in prison movies 😦 . He ran away to his castle (Predjama Castle):
…and was besieged by his former captors but people brought him food and supplies through the tunnels in the mountain and then one day the enemy bribed a guard to put a candle in the window when the knight was in the bathroom. Then they shot the toilet with a cannon and he died.
Next we went to Piran and it was WINDY so we stayed home the rest of the day.
The next day we went to the beach and the castle wall which was fun. There was a movie on that was called Magic in the Moonlight about a magician who was trying to unmask a fake medium (based on Harry Houdini). The next day we left to go to Sirmione, Italy which is where we are now. Yesterday we went swimming.
One thought on “Mortal Kombat, Harry Houdini, and WIND”
