Hungary for Spelunking and Spa-ing

Budapest has been called the city of spas, but it can also be called the city of caves as well.  It is said that there are approximately 200 caves that can be found under the capital. These caves were formed by the same springs that today supply the thermal baths. The majority of the caves were discovered at the beginning of the 20th century, when house buildings and drainage construction works were carried out. Budapest has nine strictly protected caves and three are open to the public, and we ventured down one of the them.  Our Hungarian cave guide (Laszlo was his name, but I could have sworn I heard Asshole) had been caving since he was 15 years old. Now 30, Laszlo thought he would take up comedic story telling to which Morgan, myself and the rest of our splunking group strongly advised against in our heart of hearts as every sentence was followed by a mouth fart. The only thing comedic about everything he said. 

Beneath the floors of Budapest are several natural springs and wells that contain beneficial minerals and healing waters known for their healing effects on joints and arthritic ailements. Budapest is special because it is the only big city in the world that is rich in medicinal water springs as well. Every day nearly 70 million litres of thermal water are coming from the 118 natural sources and bored wells at 21-78°C.  One of the special features of the bath: men who play chess in the steaming water (in winter as well).
Once every month Budapest hosts a massive bath party. It is described by the locals as one big orgy. World reknown DJ’s play music while people dance, drink and party in one big bath tub.  You can expect to see a lot of dry humping.  Imagine reclining in an outdoor thermal pool surrounded by fire jugglers and acrobats, water ballets and belly dancers, 360° visuals. It is called the Cinetrip Water Circus

    Can't believe you added the part about his name sounding like "ass hole". It was pretty funny thou, watching 15 strangers lookin to each other for confirmation of what we just heard, "My name is "ass hole", please keep an eye on me when i get off the bus: you get off too. Just follow me, the "ugly" guy named "ass hole".'
