Edit - David Tennant is still my favourite Doctor
While talking about time I must show you my wonderful ATC from Eileen - it has taken a while to get here, it may well have travelled around the world!
There were some lovely bits and pieces from Eileen, as well as her beautiful ATC - Thank you so much!!
Now, I am taking you back to Budapest, I am sorry the planned post never materialised!
As I mentioned last week I got my days mixed up! On our second day in Budapest we caught the Big Red Bus! It was a hop on - hop off bus so that our ticket lasted all day and we could go on three different routes in turn! It was a sunny day and we managed to get upstairs and under a canopy most times we hopped on!!
We caught it half way around, near our hotel, here is the ticket lady!
We collected earphones and plugged into the commentary.
It was great to see the Parliament buildings from different angles..
... old statues and modern street artWe crossed over into Buda - to visit the Palace, the castle and St Matthias church - one of the most impressive I have seen(it may have a post of it's own some time!)
There were some magnificent statues!
The best thing for me were the views across the river.
I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday.
Hubby had a coke(Yes Elizabeth, it arrived in a glass bottle)and I had water with ice and lemon.
Hubby had chicken, I had pork.
Do you think I went too far??? This was the dessert we were about to share. He was waiting for me to eat the triangle from the end!
After this a little walk! The moon was just rising.
The next night we spotted birds flying around the Parliament roof after dark (none during the day)and tried to work whether they were real or part of a light show!
We discovered on our last night there that they are real, and after a sunny day the metal on the roof creates thermal pockets that the seagulls in the area come to play in!!
We stood and watched for while before heading back to our hotel.
Next time will be our last day in Budapest before heading to Vienna.
Thanks for looking, we are off for a walk now, but I will be back later. Chris
