Today’s picture taken at a later hour than usual because we got in late and went to dinner with my Hungarian publishers and translators straight from the airport. It was a fabulous dinner. I ate quite a lot. It seems unlikely I will remain awake much longer than it takes to write this post. Good night, all. PS: I know it’s still day where most of you are, because of that whole “curvature of the Earth” thing. Even so.
What is this ‘curvature of the Earth’ you speak of? You mean it isn’t flat?
its a lovely picture.

Welcome <3 I hope we will have a chance to meet on the weekend.
Hm, well me here is reading it one timezone away, after a family reunion dinner before (Orthodox) Easter at what is midnight in Budapest.
Does it come with Keanununu saying “Buddha-Pehst”?”
These bastards in Gresham Palace gave you a backyard room? :)
We’ve been to Romania and Budapest. The central district with all the Second Empire architecture was unexpected and awesome. I got to go to the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania to see European brown bears (what we call grizzlys) and got an eyeful. We had a great time and would love to visit the country again. Romania really deserves to be better known as a tourist destination.
I’m so jealous!
@foxstudio, that’s a different country, and Bucharest… it’s Hungary and you know Budapest :)
Hungary is a poor country, with few parking lots.
I hope you have a great time; we were in Budapest last fall and loved it.
Sweet. I have always wanted to visit Buda, also Pest.
But I have to tell you, you could have said that picture was taken in New York and I’d have believed it.
Transylvania was once part of Hungary; the borders in the eastern bloc are fluid, like water.
It’s a mystery why eastbound flights cause bigger jet-lags than westbound flights. After an eastbound flight I usually need like two days to recuperate, while after a westbound flight I have enough on one good night-rest.
I went to Hungary and had a great time. I was lucky that my husband had family there so I got lots of delicious home cooking as well as great restaurant meals. I didn’t have a bad meal the whole time.
Budapest, eh? Did you bring along Monty Python’s English-Hungarian phrasebook?
