16:00 soon rolled around, and it was time to meet Becca's friend, Dora. We shuffled ourselves to the known meeting point (Oktagon) hoping for a coffee in the near future. A side street cafe and a pick-me-up later, Dora insisted we visit a Ruin Pub - a once lively building abandoned and transformed into a, you guessed it, pub
Dora doled out some city expertise, as well as some language essentials and post office pointers. Her and Becca were also able to catch up since they last saw each other in Hawaii. They called it a "Kalani Reunion".
After giving much thanks and saying farewell to Dora, we popped into the corner Greek place, which, to allow ourselves the pleasure of food connoisseurs for no reason, was sufficient, but a bit subpar (insert snobby French laugh). No worries, we didn't need too much - the day was enough.
Budapest, what can be said? Your people are kind and your charm is overwhelming. "Szia" tomorrow.
Ps. We have been craving ice water. And I mean craving! They don't believe in ice here. Anyways so our server at dinner asked if we wanted "ice" water and we were thrilled and said yes of course. She comes back with sparkling water. Ughh. We wanted ICE CUBES not carbonation.
