Today I'll share some memories from Budapest (pronounced 'Budapesht', or so I'm told).
Budapest was a much needed breakpoint in the middle for us. While Budapest, Hungary is a more eastern european city and country than the ones we'd previously visited, we stayed with some wonderful American hosts who cooked for us and shared American goodies and generally made us feel right at home. The city also had an international feel with all variety of restaurants, embassies, and shopping. Although not everything translated quite right:
|Math must be different in Hungary. 100 years old?|
|Hard Rock Budapest. Well-played, son.|
|A bridge. Not especially significant. Unless you consider free trade within a city significant|
|Pest. The section of the city, not the nuisance.|
|The old market. Still a market. So maybe it should just be called, 'the market'.|
|Fun times with E: hummus, slides, and bubbles.|
|The Gellert Hotel. It's important and notable.|
|The Hungarian Parliament building. Really big, prized by the city.|
|This building was built for the World's Fair.|
A cool concept, each section replicates and represents different notable buildings throughout Hungary.
Saved us plenty on gas money.
|A biiiig church. Every European capitol needs one.|
