Our Last Day Abroad

... expect things to be like America here. We learned a valuable lesson in embracing the strangeness of foreign countries.

After lunch we took the metro to Kossuth Lajos Ter.

A brief side note about public transportation: We have been using trams, buses, and the metro a lot because Grandpa has trouble walking long distances with his two knee replacements. At first, they were a bit of a challenge for Grandma and Grandpa. Here in Budapest, and in Prague, the escalators ...

... lifted the mat, picked up the key left under it, as you do, and unlocked the door. He indicated to us that we go right through and out to the outdoor terrace on the other side.

... out to a traditional Hungarian restaurant for dinner with Nora. I had paprika chicken with these potato gnocchi/dumpling things- it was really nice!

After dinner we were so exhausted so we wanted to get back and have a good sleep as tomorrow we had a 6 hour train trip. We got back and the room was so stifling hot that I couldn't even think about sleeping. I slept wrapped up in a wet towel that kept drying every 2 hours so I had to keep getting up to wet ...

... a thursday, the park was relatively empty and left us plenty of space to have fun without waiting in long lines.

Another bonus from the water park is that it overlooked a F1 (Formula 1) racetrack. We were able to see some cars practicing and hear their loud engines purring throughout the Hungarian countryside. It was a great adventure, and Dilyara especially enjoyed it because she used to be a major fan of formula 1.
