Day 19: last day in Budapest, and we decided to get bikes and go to the island in the middle of the Danube. It’s a giant park and it’s gorgeous and peaceful and full of flowers!
Darn! Looks like I skipped Day 17: This is just a little taste of the BIZARRE language that is Hungarian, or Magyar in their language. Hungary in the language is actually Magyarország. No wonder no one but natives speak it!
Day 18: What better way to spend the afternoon than at a traditional bathhouse in beautiful Budapest? One of the most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had. Plus there were definitely some old KGB dudes playing chess in the pool. Ahh, eastern Europe.
Day 16: The Parliament building on the Danube River, Budapest. This city is quickly shaping up to be one of my favorite. Too bad the language is TOTALLY incomprehensible
Day 15: first taste not only of the delicious food here (pesto gnocchi and sesame duck salad with a Rosé) but how much food you actually get for less than 5 euros, which is around 1500 Hungarian Forint. Yummmm
Day 14: last one in Berlin, so I had to end with a Bourne moment. This one is for the Faja - Alexanderplatz Station
…and the awesome view from the top.
…and the very modern interior of the Dome, which is right above the hall where votes are casts and decisions made. Mirrors comprise the majority of this central pillar…
Day 13: A visit to the Reichstag, German seat of Government. Which means security is INTENSE. This is the old façade, redone after WWII
Day 12: Clash of old and new - the definition of Berlin. Here the Berlin TV tower hides behind the Berlinerdom Katedral and a statue in front of the Museum of Antiquities. Museum Island, Mitte, Berlin
