... was it an effective system. My passport got stamped twice, even after I tried to show the guard my passport had already been checked. It was all confusing and frustrating as we waited. There was a little cheer when we got going again! Shortly after departing the conductor came by and said with his limited English "change train ", which we repeated a couple times with him as we were surprised we had to change trains again. ...
... I like the feeling of making myself feel a little anxious and out of my comfort zone because otherwise life gets a little boring! Our outfits for this included overalls and a helmet with a light on it. Our group was split into two so there was about 12 of us which I think was the perfect size. Our tour guide was Hungarian and so good and had been caving for 19 years all over the world! That made me feel a little better. We literally had to go on our stomachs and have ...
... as I could tell by body parts that it was a man, but had no clue as to who. I would never in a million years have figured out the lion though... One of the girls in the group asked a very interesting question: When you are blind, what are your dreams like? Our guide was sighted as a child, and lost her vision at age 3 (she is probably in her early 20s now). She told us that she couldn't answer for a "never sighted" person, but for her, she used to dream in images, but now dreams ...
... in the memorial section and museum then set off for another directionless wander - I headed across the river to Buda to climb up to a statue I had spied and see Pest from another view. I head home discovering another wonderful and popular square and more beautiful buildings. The images are not so flash today due to the weather and having left the good camera at the hotel. Also, the rain subsided at about 3 pm allowing me to have dinner in a local outdoor ...
... culture, city landscape and the people of today's Hungary.
It came as a bit of a surprise that Budapest actually existed at this very site at all as the Hungarians were originally nomadic people who roamed around for many years before finally settling on Budapest. They must have loved the area too, as they defended it with their lives against the Mongols, Turks, Magyars, Germans (WWI & WWII) and the Soviets throughout the years that followed. With all this ...

Stayed here in Mid-November. Hotel was wonderfully located near the City Centre. It was only a short walk to most of the tourist attractions.
For the most part staff was very courteous with some exception. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was wonderful about quickly changing our rooms because we didn't want to be on the main road side of the hotel due to some noise. We were put into a room which we found out later that the heat only went on and could not be turned down. This meant that the room went up to 25C at one point. The reception staff we called told us just to open the window. Quick fix yes, but not the best alternative.
Breakfast was up and down. First day was bacon and eggs with cereal, breads, and fruit. Next day eggs with mushrooms and half the breads were gone with no fruit. Last day there the coffee machine died. So all in all ups and downs. Was nice to have a relatively cheap place to eat right in the hotel.
Shower had great temp and water pressure though if you have any issues raising your leg above about 2 feet you might have a bit of trouble getting into the shower.
All in all pretty good overall.
