... housing a green and yellow budgie. I tried to explain to the young russian that the bird was native to Australia, but it was lost in translation..

We made our way to the Hermitage Museum and joined the line. It took about 45 minutes or so to get in which I would suggest was a good timing, given it was packed with people. I was told by a wise russian friend that if you spent 5 seconds looking at every piece, you would ...

... to meet with Elena. Luckily I recognised her! We started off in Dvortsovaya Ploshchad (Palace Square), a huge open space ringed by the General Staff building (the longest continuous building in the world after the Pentagon) and The Hermitage. In the middle of the square is the Alexander Column. Erected by Tsar Alexander I after the victory over Napoleon, it's around 45 metres tall and is standing under it's own weight. It has no foundations and no connection ...

... the New Hermitage, the Small Hermitage and the Hermitage Theatre. It houses only 10% of all the works of art owned by the Museum, about 300,000 pieces. If they displayed all 3,000,000 pieces and we spent a minute admiring each one, it would take almost six years non stop to go through it all.

... of Budapest. Tourists are everywhere. We walk to the town square, across the famous bridge and up to the castle. Then climb up the 292 steps to the top of the cathedral. What a view of the city! The kids always enjoy climbing to the top of cathedrals/churches. The sun is out and we take some lovely photos. We head back to the old square and see the old clock which is 600 years old. The next day we look for a park to play football and find a great playground. It's near ...
