budapest day two

This morning I woke up around 9AM and got breakfast with Grace and Ainura at the hostel.  Since I didn’t have any clean t-shirts left and my laundry wouldn’t be done until later in the day, I needed to get a short sleeved shirt to wear around for the day since it was projected to be in the 80s.  We went to the mall just down the road and I got a nice striped shirt for a little less than 10USD.  When we left the mall we saw a stand that was selling mojitos for about 2.50USD, so naturally, we got some and walked towards the parliament building.  By this time it was about 12:30 so we deemed it socially acceptable to start imbibing.

We then walked to the parliament building and took a bunch of pictures, and then wandered off towards the chain bridge and stopped at the Shoes on the Danube Bank to take some more pictures.

We crossed the chain bridge and got lunch at a Hungarian restaurant.  I got Hungarian goulash and a pilsner and both were very tasty.  The meal was about 3000HUF, or roughly 10USD.

We then headed up to Fisherman’s Bastion and got great views of the city and took many pictures.

We then walked over to Budapest Castle and hiked up to the top and, you guessed it, took even more pictures.

We then walked back to the hostel and took a quick nap before heading back out again for kebabs and to take pictures of the city at night.

We then walked along the Danube on the opposite side to get pictures of the parliament building from the more iconic side.

Today was a very good day.  I’m not totally sure what we’re doing tomorrow since it’s Ainura’s last day in Budapest but whatever it is I’m sure we’ll have fun and will take a bunch of pictures.
