It was rainy and windy, the wind could easily blow me away... Budapest is divided by river Dabube, the longest river in European Union, region Buda and region Pest (guess that's what makes the name Budapest). Too bad I was only able to explore the "Pest" side of Budapest..... The architecture is quite nice...with huge catedrals and parliament building etc.... But I don't find it as nice as what others describe. The whole city seems to be under construction. Many places are fenced off for construction and it's noisy. I couldn't see much or enter....
Loved the hungarian cuisine, which mainly meat based though. Had a superb beef goulash soup....... :)
Despite the bad weather and construction, I think I would like to come back to Hungary... People are quite nice and most of them speak English. Hungarian men and women are beautiful... quite to my surprise...
