From Eli:

This is the ufo tower insted of ufo tower we call it ufo gower.

it is really nice up there but the stairs are side ways up there slightly. and the weird thing is the elevator runs on rails because the stilts are side ways. but there is only one elevator which on the right side in the picter right there you see. in this picter the ufo tower or gower what ever you want to call it OK is holding up a bridg that you can’t see.

And now from Mom:

Here is Eli enjoying his plate of ribs.

Ribs, pork knuckles, and good beer.  One of the reasons we go to Bratislava is for the food!

Not the schmaltz though.  Eastern Europe does some weird things with pig fat.

The other reason we come is because its feel of Eastern Europe reminds us of happy days in Ukraine.  Kid-Friendly, castles, and charm oozing everywhere.

The UFO tower was an attraction we also wanted to cross off our list of “Weird Concrete Soviet Architecture.”

Even though Vienna is beautiful, sometimes we need something a little less polished and a little more gritty around the edges.  Like UFO Towers.  We are Bratislovers.
