Ok, so I admit I definitely have been lazy on updating my travel blog, but I've been in Budapest for the last week having a nice ole time with my German friend, Dirk.  I met Dirk through Couchsurfing this last year, when he spent several months in Lima/Peru.  I contacted him when I knew I was coming to Budapest, where he's studying, and have stayed with him for this past week.

So anywho, I've gone walking around town for most of the days that I've been here. On one of my first days I walked all over town with Dirk and up the hill to the Budapest Castle area, which was quite nice.  Another day I walked with Jimmy, Dirk's roommate, towards another area of town up another hill to the "freedom statue", and where I had some amazing night views.

I've also been going out quite a bit with Dirk and his friends to different clubs and bars.  Plenty of pictures documenting my trip on facebook.  I'll try and remember to paste the links in here later on, but the internet is quite slow at times.

Today it's raining and the weather is pretty crappy, so I'm just relaxing at Dirk's place while he works on school stuff.  Tomorrow morning I'm off to the Budapest airport and flying to Paris around noon.  I'm pretty excited, since it IS friggin' Paris and all, so that should be nice.  I'll be there for about a week, and then most likely heading up to Lille, then Belgium and the Netherlands, before reaching Dusseldorf to take my flight to Florida on December 8th.

Querido Chris,

Me alegra mucho que estes pasando un tiempo feliz con tu amigo Dirk en Budapest. Supongo que pasaras una semana excelente en Paris recorriendo esa ciudad tan bella y extraordinaria. No sabia que viajabas a los Estados Unidos en diciembre, piensas ir a visitar a tu abuelita? Piensas quedarte varias semanas o meses en los Estados Unidos? Me parecio entender que recien pensabas regresar al Peru en el mes de marzo, verdad?
Bueno, sea lo que fuere deseo de todo corazon que sigas disfrutando de tu viaje. Te quiere mucho, tu tía Cococha
