On Tuesday, two hours by train from Miskolc to Budapest through the plains of Hungary. Carpathian Mountains in the distance behind a typical, rural scene.
Welcome to Budapest, the capital city of two million. Parliament building left me breathless. Oh how magnificent. It has 365 turrets but who's counting, right? Funny, got to chatting with some folks from Great Britian today who said, Well it was nice enough. But we've got many such buildings in England...
Here it is again, from across the Danube River, taken from Fisherman's Bastion. Say, does that river look blue to you? What's with the Blue Danube?
Well sure, I'd love to pose with an eagle. Seems as though I've done that fairly recently at another castle. . .
One more shot: Parliament across the Danube. Actually I'm kind of proud of that shot. Is it a sin to be proud like that? Well, moving right along. . .
Still at Fisherman's Bastion, a view of turrets, facing south. This is on the Buda side, the west side of the river.
